Here is a sequence that I have found works every time:

# Remove this RPM if you want the GL screen savers
# to work. Do this before the next steps.
rpm -e --nodeps XFree86-Mesa-libGL

# Run this to create a custom version of the NVidia driver
./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run --add-this-kernel

# The above will create a custom version for the kernel
# So now run this as a final step
./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2-custom.run

Don't forget to make the required changes in XF86Config.

HTH,
