Check http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html. You probably want Linux IA32, unless you have an AMD chip or a 64bit system. The link provides the script and instructions.

Check out this
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...5&pagenumber=7

Dalek wrote a pretty good how-to
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ticle&artid=30

get the how-tos from Nvidia as well
ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Li...676/README.txt

but generally Daleks one should carry you through OK

Dont use KWrite to edit the conf files
read my episode about that in the first link
