There is some kind of bug in F8's and F7's yum that sometimes makes it
pick i586 instead of i686 packages. You can help yum by specifying the
arch explicitly like for example

yum install kernel.i686

That's another bug that has been fixed (I think) in the latest yum. So
do a

yum install yum

first and then try again.

Do the following:

yum install yum kernel.i686 yum-plugin-kmdl

Then do a

yum install nvidia-graphics
