Installing nvidia driver from atrpms ... and another yum problem

Hi All,

I kindly ask for your help!
I have a Core2Duo CPU and NVidia 8600GT-based video adapter on my
MythTV frontend-only machine.
I'd like to install the latest nvidia driver using yum and atrpms.

When I do a 'yum install nvidia-graphics', I get this:

 Package                 Arch       Version          Repository        Size
 nvidia-graphics         i386       2:169.07-23      atrpms            2.9 k
 kernel                  i686  installed          44 M
Installing for dependencies:

 nvidia-graphics-helpers  i386       0.0.22-23.fc7    atrpms            5.5 k
 nvidia-graphics169.07   i386       1:169.07-94.fc7  atrpms            1.9 M
 nvidia-graphics169.07-kmdl-  i586       1:169.07-94.fc7  atrpms            2.6 M
 nvidia-graphics169.07-libs  i386       1:169.07-94.fc7  atrpms            5.0 M

Transaction Summary
Install      7 Package(s)
Update       0 Package(s)
Remove       1 Package(s)

Total download size: 25 M
Is this ok [y/N]:

I got a bit confiused, as yum wants to remove i686 kernel and
update it with the i586 one. So I decided not to continue with the
installation. Then I tried to run 'yum update' without installing the
new driver and I got the following error:

--> Processing Dependency: /boot/vmlinuz- for package: fuse-kmdl-
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: /boot/vmlinuz- is needed by package fuse-kmdl-

So I seem to stuck with no new nvidia driver and no updates.
Of course I can download and compile the driver from NVidia web site.
But I'd like to use yum to have it done more or less automatically,
and I'd like my updates to work... 

Could you please point me to the right direction? I'm really lost with
these dependency problems...
