It should work fine with pretty much any modern distro. You'll have to give us some more info as to what the problem is.
About all I can offer based on your post is after you downloaded the file, did you make it executable by doing:
chmod +x americasarmy.bin
(substitue americasarmy.bin with the actual filename)
Using the nvidia installer from www.nvidia.com
should be pretty straightforward on any distro, just make sure you have your kernel sources in /usr/src as it needs them to build the nvidia module. It's all in the nvidia documentation.
