if your installing your nvidia drivers then I think it's better to getout of X at some point of the installation ... and to do that:
Brute force method: press the following keys together at the same time "Ctrl Alt Backspace" to exit X
Simple way: depending on your window / desktop manager youre using with your X window system look for a way to exit or logout the window / desktop manager.
But if you login from your X after you boot up your linux distro ... well the above will not work for you ... and there is a bit more work.
