Sorry for jumping in a bit late here, but all initial steps sound proper
and the last problem sounds like the udev issue which has been
referenced previously.

Review the steps on this page:


Scroll down to the nVidia section towards the bottom of the page and
follow the two steps there. That should solve the re-boot problem. I
don't remember, but you may have to redo the nVidia installer one last
time after the above steps.

Then the only other time you would need to redo the nVidia installer is
if you boot a new/different kernel.

I have the 7174 driver (using the nVidia installer) running just fine
with the latest 2.6.11-1.14_FC3 kernel.
