The error ISN'T just in a 32-bit install, but also 64-bit. EVERY box with
nVidia that I've tried has failed.

You still haven't told us *which* nVidia driver etc., etc. Or would you
rather that we search back through your old posts & recompile the
information ourselves? Good luck.

I've mentioned it more than once, but, it's NOT just one chipset.
According to
your site reference, it's not chipset specific, so no wonder there are
problems.
Apparently it's a script failure on the nVidia site and the installer.

So what have nVidia said as to when they will have this script error
corrected?

'Same problem I've had since beta1.....the script is defective and the
nVidia model can't load. Note that 9.1 works just fine with the nVidia
GeForce 6150LE chipset.

Throw that away and visit http://rpmfusion.org/Howto/nVidia.

I agree with Matthew, look at http://rpmfusion.org/Howto/nVidia#head-205aab6f190d363e3915c0fa2e0681fc392aaeb6.
*
If you can't live without it :
1) Boot without X, and login as root
2) sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-195.36.15-pkg2.run
*
It will compile a
kernel module against your current*kernel, and when you will upgrade the
kernel you have to do it again.
Some minutes needed.

After that, follow
what explained in the link above.

As suggested above do not install the run package but make sure
rpmfusion is in your repo

then install it from either yum or add/remove software



If you install the above run file YOU WILL HAVE TO RECOMPILE KMOD on
every kernel update.

If you do it from repo then* it is automatic





The how to details how to install correctly



You must blacklist nouveau in grub config before you reboot after the
driver install



On each kernel line after quiet rdblacklist=nouveau
