NVIDIA Question



This may be a dumb question, but why can't Redhat distribute NVIDIA binary
drivers?

In NVIDIA's licence (http://www.nvidia.com/object/nv_swlicense.html) it
says:

"2.1.2  Linux Exception.  Notwithstanding the foregoing terms of Section

2.1.1, SOFTWARE designed exclusively for use on the Linux operating system
may be
copied and redistributed, provided that the binary files thereof are not
modified in any
way (except for unzipping of compressed files)."

So, what's keeping RedHat from putting the drivers in the distribution? If
it's a GPL
thing, would it be easy to just download it during installation or at
least give the option to the user?

Thanks,
