building nvidia kernel module

I spent a couple of days installing fedora core 6 on my desktop and I'm 
quite impressed
with the distribution. I have an nvidia 7600 card with dual DVI output 
and two
21" LCD screens. What made the fedora core 6 work so well for me, with 
to the nvidia card, is that there is a yum repository call livna which 
has rpm'ed packages
for the nvidia drivers etc. So basically, I don't have to deal with 
building any drivers
and it basically works "just like that". And now, I've got the full 
power of the nvidia
drivers running compiz windowing environment. (I'm not sure what exatcly 
is, a window manager or some kind of layer between the X and the window 
gnome, but the wobbly windows and flipping desktop is an awesome environment
to do my work.)
