I am going to reply to my own post..... I think I found the answer. 
Here it is.... someone called Pucko posted it to a message board.

1) Interrupt Grub from booting, edit the bootparameters with "e"-key,
and remove the "rhgb"-parameter from the boot parameters. The continue
booting normally. (This will skip the graphical boot in Fedora.)

2) Fedora complains about not being able to start GDM, ignore it and
cancel all questions to get to the login prompt.

3) Login as root, enter "init 3" to go to single-user mode. Enter
"modprobe nvidia" to load the nvidia-module.

4) Finally, enter "cp -a /dev/nvidia* /etc/udev/devices/" to fix the
boot problem.

5) Now just enter "init 5" and you're back in business.
