I solved the problem by removing manually the kernel and nvidia rpm
with all their dependencies and then doing this:

with the RPM packages at
http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/updates/9/x86_64
http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/updates/9/x86_64

The general problem remains, however: there is no way to make yum
install a specific version of a package, no matter what its man page
says.
