Updating Driver For Nvidia Geforce FX 5200

Hey, i originally started using the Linux OS with Fedora Core 2, i liked it but not enough to keep it, so i just switched to SuSE 9.1 which is FTP installed just yesterday. SuSE is working perfectly and is good, i chose this because i couldnt access my Windows partition from fedora but i can in SuSE. I just used YOU (Yast Online Update) And Installed EVERYTHING including one called Nvidia Graphics Driver. It downloaded successfully but im not sure if it installed. My fps now is around 200-400. When i installed the driver in Fedora Core 2 i was getting FPS 1200+ so i know something is wrong. Please can someone guide me on how to install and work the nvidia card on SuSE 9.1?

Thanks In Advance,
