More precisely, is there an nvidia driver

I've had trouble getting flash to play right
either through firefox or through mplayer.
Most recently mplayer told me that my system was to slow.
It made suggestions that were scrolled
off the screen by many cpoies of
AO: [pulse] pa_stream_get_latency() failed: Connection terminated
AO: [pulse] pa_stream_write() failed: Connection terminated.4% 1312 0
[1] Replace the nouveau driver with the "evil" Nvidia driver
I did that:
 kmod-nvidia-PAE.i686 0:185.18.36-1.fc11.1

Dependency Installed:
 kmod-nvidia- 0:185.18.36-1.fc11.1
 livna-config-display.noarch 0:0.0.23-1.fc11
 rhpxl.i586 0:1.12-2.fc11
 system-config-display.noarch 0:1.1.3-2.fc11
 xorg-x11-drv-nvidia.i586 0:185.18.36-1.fc11
 xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i586 0:185.18.36-1.fc11


[2] mplayer "-ao alsa"
I did this, but mplayer still craps out on me.
mplayer -nosound still works, but quietly.
Rebooting failed.

Eventually I did a cntrl-alt-F2 to get a console,
logged in as root and did a yum erase kmod-nvidia-PAE .
Rebooting still failed.
On my next attempt, I picked the second option on the grub menu.
This time, rebooting worked.

Apparently, if I want a system that's not too slow and can play
flash without mplayer hanging, I'll need to go back to F10.
I certainly don't want to go through that mess again.

Gawd I hate it when things just don't work.
