Kevin, what rpms ate you using?
The ones from rawhide worked OK for me.

I agree with Raymond though, remove the 3.x.x rpms first.
You'll need to use the -nodeps switch.
XFree4.0 also need some other/newer libs (ncurses I think)

You may need to use -nodeps to install too.
I'm using the XFree86*-4.0-0.8 rpms from rawhide
(ftp://rawhide.redhat.com or a mirror) and NVIDIA's
drivers with my TNT2-M64. 
I've heard the latest ones have issues (newer glibc and such)
so try the -0.8 builds first.
