For those not experienced with RHEL and nvidia kernel modules, when you install a new kernel, you have to run the nvidia installer after the system boots under the new kernel to build the nvidia module for that kernel. Then a reboot gets it all working again. Imagine doing that for 25 engineering workstations in a dept, and you'll get the idea. Yum works great if you can live with the default 'nv' driver.
I've had good luck using Dell's nvidia RPMs from here:
They're a little out of date, but it's basically a wrapper around the
nvidia CLI installer so it's not too hard to drop the latest&greatest in
if you want to.
