I haven't try to use firmware downloaded from Nvidia's site, I'd rather use
repository. Now I'm using xorg-x11-driver-video-nouveau.
Thank You in advance,

Hi Vojtech,

I just went through the graphicscard-hell myself (try getting an NVidia
AND an ATI card working in one machine ; )

There's a few things you can do in this stage...
the reason why the xserver fails is logged in /var/log/Xorg.0.log
if you want to have a quicker way to check the xorg.conf file, you can log
into your machine from another one (ssh, telnet) and run startx.

one thing to also check is, did you run nvidia-xconfig from the command line
