Open a terminal, make sure you're root (su - ), type telinit 3, and X closes. After you're finished installing, type telinit 5 and your back in X.

If it said "installation successful", you can bet your bananas the installation was successful.

Just make sure you replaced the "nv" with "nvidia" in your XF86Config like the readme for the drivers said to. There are also a few lines that you may have to get rid of if thay're in there.

You should read the NVidia's README file that is also available from their site. It shows what to do and how. It might seem quite daunting, but a lot of the information in there you shouldn't need to read, although it does make for an interesting read... yes, I am bored.
