1) you don't 2) you don't. you already have them installed and redy to roll. in your X configuration just specify "nv" as the driver.

well.. in fact i think that the full on nvidia.com drivers do support TNT's but your not really going to benefit the install on such a low end obselete card.

You want to go to Nvidia's website and peruse their archives, as their most current drivers don't support the TNTs.
