The nvidia script won't work with an X session running.  You have to get to
run level 3 and run directly from the command line console screen.  It is
getting harder and harder to get out of gui to get a plain text console. 
Probably easiest for you is to edit /boot/grub/grub.conf and put a blank
followed by a 3 on the line with the kernel description.  For example

	kernel /vmlinuz- ro root=LABEL=/ 3 vga=791 early-login
