Fedora 11 SLI Ridiculous Problem!!! Help Please!

Hello all!
So I got an SLI card from a friend that went overseas for a while, and It worked fine in M$ windows 7, but when I went to turn linux on for work, I got a horrendous
virbr0 starting userspace stp failed
then when I took the 2nd card out, went into the system and did the following:
chkconfig libvirtd off
I got another error about eth1 not being detected or some crap.
Now I am really interested - how does my SLI card have anything to do with internet and networking?

so I went into linux with my original card, installed the kmod drivers (I am in Fedora 11 64 bit) and then enabled SLI in the xorg.conf menu

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Device "Videocard0"
Option "SLI" "On"
SubSection "Display"
Modes "nvidia-auto-select"

and still the system is complaining about virbr0.
Can anyone please assist me?
Did I do something wrong with installing the SLI?

Upon further investigation (When I went into init 3 from that error menu (I realize I get that networking crap after linux actually loads, right before i would normally see the login screen))
I was trying to install the nvidia driver from init3, and I see that it says something along these lines
Enabling Nvidia Driver _________ segfault at 7f6ba800000000 error 4 in libc2.10.1 /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions
Anyone have any idea as to what I should do?

I had this same error recently, and after much research I found that adding:
Option "AllowEmptyInput" "false"
to the section "InputDevice" (mouse) of your xorg.conf seemed to make it work

Never mind all, I got it.
All I had to do was install the nvidia drivers from init 3, (make sure you have kernel-devel before though)
then nvidia-xconfig -a to enable all.
Good stuff
