Use the SuSE Update tool in Yast.
Tell it to look for all updates and then scroll down to the bottom of the list.
The NVIDIA drivers will be there.

SUSE doesn't like the normal nvidia drivers.

That is another problem.... :(

I guess the real problem is in the board drivers, cause I find that the USB are on, but it apears as wrong ID, I can't connect to the Internet with my speedtouch modem...I'm realy bad in linux...
