nvidia-graphics169.12-kmdl-2.6.24.3-34.fc8-169.12 : i586

Looks good to me.


No it is not. You are using an i586 nvidia module for an i686 kernel.

This is why the module is not loading. The architectures do not  match.

You have to uninstall the  i586 nvidia module and install its appropriate i686 version.
