I don't get it: you're running kernel 2.6.24.3-34, not 2.6.24.3-50, so the dependency is not satisfied. So, you don't have the prerequisite kernel for that kmod. So you can't install it. Period.

That kernel is still in Fedora updates-testing. If you want to install it, enable that repo:
yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update kernel
yum install kmod-nvidia

V

P.S. If you want the kmod for kernel 2.6.24.3-34, then tell yum explicitly that you want THAT kmod:
yum install kmod-nvidia-2.6.24.3-34.fc8-169.12-3.lvn8.i686.rpm

You have to specify it that way because yum will always want to install the "latest and greatest" otherwise - i.e., in this case, kmod-nvidia-2.6.24.3-50. Yum's little mind isn't smart enough to know that you want kmod-nvidia-2.6.24.3-34 unless you tell it so explicitly. Clear?

You can avoid this confusion in future by installing yum-fedorakmod and/or yum-kernel-module, which will ensure that all available kmods are installed.

That kernel is not in Fedora updates-testing. This is the output of yum update:

Hello:

The updated kernel may not yet have been loaded into your nearest mirror site. Try:

yum clean all
yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update kernel

If that does not get you the updated kernel, you may simply have to wait, or if you really want it, go fetch it manually.
