Blame Fedora. Again.

While we're here playing the blame game, understand that NVIDIA's stable drivers fail to build the kernel module in 2.6.25[.x]. Their 173.08 driver works fine, but it is currently considered beta quality.
I had the same experience as the F9 users when I first tried installing one of NVIDIA's stable drivers with the vanilla 2.6.25[.x] on Slackware 12. But, their (beta) 173.08 driver hasn't given me any trouble so far.
Blame who you will, but my personal thoughts are (1) this is the price I pay for mixing FLOSS and proprietary binary driver code, and (2) Fedora should not be blamed for the NVIDIA's proprietary driver not working on F9.
