So happy linux questions people are willing to help.
OK now that I finally have uncompressed the file I am left with a debian directory and a nv directory. I there is nothing to ./configure in the nv file, but there is however a makefile file. upon traying to "make" I get this error.

Code:
If you are using a Linux 2.4 kernel, please make sure
you either have configured kernel sources matching your
kernel or the correct set of kernel headers installed
on your system.

If you are using a Linux 2.6 kernel, please make sure
you have configured kernel sources matching your kernel
installed on your system. If you specified a separate
output directory using either the "KBUILD_OUTPUT" or
the "O" KBUILD parameter, make sure to specify this
directory with the SYSOUT environment variable or with
the equivalent nvidia-installer command line option.

Depending on where and how the kernel sources (or the
kernel headers) were installed, you may need to specify
their location with the SYSSRC environment variable or
the equivalent nvidia-installer command line option.

*** Unable to determine the target kernel version. ***

make: *** [select_makefile] Error 1
I am very embarrassed to say that I have no idea which kernel I am using or how to find out... or what any of the above means for that matter. Please continue to have patientce with me.. and forgive my inability to spell.

It would seem I either lost my help, or this just got burried under 1 million other help requests. Is anyone out there who will take the time to help explain this to me? Thanks.

* Find your kernel number.

$ uname -r

* Make shore you have the linux-restricted-modules installed.

$ sudo apt-get install linux-restricted-modules-"Your kernel number"

* Install the nvidia-glx package

$ sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx

* Enable glx.

$ sudo nvidia-glx-config enable

* Start the Xserver

$ startx

Good luck
