cant install nvidia drivers...


...because you need an internet connection to update the kernel

and you need the nvidia drivers to have a working internet connection...



without it , it just says 'unable to find the kernel source tree for the currently running kernel. Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your kernel and that they are properly configured, blah blah blah blah'

Huh? Do you need help or are you just making a point? Assuming it's the former, which distro did you load and what motherboard and internet device do you have? I'd be surprised if any recent distro didn't find your ethernet device during the installation, unless it's a wireless card. Exactly which nvidia drivers do you need to load?
