As I see it, the best way would be for a third-party project like Fedora to
package the binary drivers, but with redhat-config-xfree86 being able to
modify the XF86Config file. That way, you'd just
1) apt-get install nvidia-glx
3) Check the "Enable 3d acceleration" box.
4) Restart X.
This feature would make RHL look really good in a

It's a closed source thing. Red Hat doesn't distribute any closed source
software anymore (that I know of). It's impossible to support, and it
taints your kernel.
