Video Card Drivers - MSI FX5600


I just bought this card, and I'm trying to install some drivers for it.

I confess I'm new to Linux, and I don't have any experience working from the command line.
Basically, I need to install the video drivers, so that I can run X-Windows. The MSI websites swears up and down that this card is fully supported by Linux. The truth is, I can't find the right drivers on the CD, or on the website.

I need help:
a) Finding the right drivers (they might even be on the CD, but I don't know what to look for)?
b) Installing these drivers from the command line.

I would really appreciate anyone offering whatever help they can.
Thanks!
Carl

Hi,

Have you looked at nVidia's homepage?

Peace!
