I just read your thread i placed the nvidia setup file straight into root (so I didnt have to remember its path) went into runlevel 3 logged in as 'root' and then just executed it from there ....
Mind it did say I didnt have a supported kernal or somthing to that effect and asked me to either specify a new one or let 'it' try and build me one lol basicly,
I thought well what the hell if it thinks it can build what its wanting who am i to argue with that even if it had have messed it up completely then it still would have made a better job of it than me lmao
Anyways it built it and erm yeh after some messing about with 'xorgconfig' and other interesting stuff named likewise then its all working and hey I even have a list of screen res and ref rates to play with Woot... I might add that i did break KDE twice trying to do this though..
Sorry I cant be of more help FireGunz but if I do find or rather stumble across anything that I think may help i will let you know m8
