Dont get Yast starting?

Uhm. Well. I've just installed Linux Mint 5.0 Elyssa. It's my very first meeting with Linux, But well let's get to the point

I wanted to install grapich drivers from nvidia and on their site they say i must use something called Yast. But the problem is that i don't seem to find Yast on my computer. Maybe I'm missing it but well? Please someone answer
Prefer they How-To-Do-For-Idiots verison =P
Thanks alot if you help me and I hope I start to understand this OS (:

They say on the website that this distribution is based on Ubuntu (Hardy) - which in turn is based on Debian.
The package format these distributions use is called .deb
The package-management is done via apt - the GUI-frontend is called Synaptic.

Yast is only (AFAIK) used in Suse - a distribution which uses .rpm packages.

I suggest you read some of the documentation for Mint as well as for Ubuntu - it is quite extenive and good.
