Hi.

Go root (su -) and do 'telinit 3'. Ctrl-Alt-Backspace will also exit, but slightly less elegantly.
Then you can log in as root on the console and install your driver.

open a console, then "su", enter root password, then type: init 3

after you finish the video driver install, then type: init 5

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
