Go to NVIDIA's site and download the drivers. Before doing this type X -v or X -V (don't know which one) to display the XFree86 version. Then make sure it is greater than what NVIDIA listed on their site. Download both kernel and GLX for your distribution. Then read the README file on how to install those files. Download RPM files if you can because it will make your life easier.
