wget nvidia drivers - why doesn't it work??

sorry but this is getting really frustrating....

I am trying to download the Nvidia drivers because I installed debian and can't get a gui until I do, so i have to use wget or a text downloader...

I tried:


It downloads a file called that but when I do sh NVIDIA-Linux..

it doesn't work and gives me things of html syntax so I think I am downloading the text that says this............

How do I download the actual file??

I also tried -r --no-parent and - l1 to no avail.......

Thanks for any info.

It'd be simpler to use apt-get. `apt-get install nvidia-glx` would probably do the trick.
