[PlanetCCRMA] Need help getting realtime kernel working with Fedora 8 and nvidia

Thanks for your help.
I'm glad that your solution uses the livna-supplied drivers rather than the
nvidia-supplied drivers because I understand from reading this article:
Attention: Proprietary video driver users (ATI, Nvidia, etc.)
that the drivers supplied by Nvidia overwrite some OpenGL libraries with
their own versions of those libraries. Very naughty.
Before I can proceed I need ask you a few questions:
1. How do I find out if I have the plantetccrma kernel-devel package
installed on my system and if it's not there, how do I get it?
2. Do I have to remove the livna-supplied nvidia driver that I have already
installed on my Fedora 18.104.22.168-85.fc8 kernel, or can it co-exist peacefully
with the one I'm about to install on the planetccrma
3. Do I have to do the installation as root or should I do it as a regular
4. Which 'package' do I need to download from livna: *
