It's just this series of 4 commands, run as root. (Don't enter the #
signs, they're just to mark the start of each line):

# mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup-20111202
# nvidia-xconfig
# echo blacklist nouveau >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf
# dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)
