That's very bad advice! If you're going to install binary drivers at all 
(they're known to cause stability and security problems, and they're probably 
illegal because they link non-GPL code to the GPL kernel), at least install a 
properly-packaged one so you don't get a big mess each time you update the 
kernel and/or X.Org X11. That's what http://rpm.livna.org is for.
