navigate to where the shell script is (this is the installer ) and the type ::
./nameoffile.run
or
sh nameoffile.run
of course you will replace nameoffile with the appropriate filename and then you will make the required changes to your XF86Config file as per the readme file, or you can go to the newbie fourm and check out the sticky thread there titled "FAQ: NVIDIA Drivers" and see a quick rundown on the process as compared to what the readme file says..
