yum install kmod-nvidia will probably work, or you could search for
nvidia in whatever the new PackageKit tool is (probably under
something like Add/Remove software in the menus).

The log file will have lines with (NV) on them if you are using the
nv driver. Possibly the installer generated xorg.conf file will also
mention the nv driver.

If its not an nvidia card, you definitely don't want to install the
nvidia drivers :-).

I think the lspci tool can also give you a good hint about what hardware
is on the system.
