The easiest way to install the driver is a YOU update:

YaST -> Software -> Online Update -> select 'Download NVIDIA...'

EDIT: Sorry, this didn't answer your question: No, it is not installed. Only a limited version of the driver is available by default.

MAKE SURE you have your kernel source installed
