Why extra step? Simply install the nvidia drivers and you're done.
The priority for driver load in the Xserver is nvidia --> nouveau
--> nv on NVIDIA hardware.
Are you sure ?
Does not apply to openSUSE ?!

Well, currently nouveau kernel module isn't loaded via initrd yet - due to Bug
#595570. So that's not the problem. But then you probably still need to
blacklist it via modprobe.d to prevent udev from loading it during system
start. The blacklisting during system start and excluding it from initrd will
likely be part of the nvidia RPMs for openSUSE 11.3, which won't be available
before 11.3 has been released. But as usual you can play already now with the
package sources in obs://X11:Drivers:Video/nvidia-gfxG02.

Hope that helps,
