I`m need help installing nvidia drivers for SUSE linux 10.2


Hey I`m new to linux and I do not know how to get My video card to work I know you have to put it in run lvl 3 I`m running SUSE linux 10.2 and my video card is EVGA GeForce 9500 GT 1GB the link is below.
Like I said I`m new to linux I've been running window all my life so any help here would be great.
i've also looked it up online and I could not figure out how to do it.
If it`s any help I have the CD that came with the video card.

FIRST FIND OUT IF YOU'RE CARD IS SUPPORTED .
If so add to you're repositories download.Nvidia.com/opensuse/10.2
But be a ware if you're card is not supported you loose xserver

The version 10.2 is no longer supported.

You can download the meta package of the driver at "opensuse-community.org" under "1-click collection".
