You have to download a small script from the nvidia website (choose your system architecture first) www.nvidia.com/object/linux.html,
which does the istalation procedure of the drivers ...
It is so somplicated by the nvidia comp. because the drivers are not licensed open source.

There is a how to to read before the actual install process. You'll find it in the download package.

If you find the how to confusing, get back and post your question.

read the "how to" well 'cos you need to make changes manually to the files in the config of your X server ... the changes are crutial to make things work...
