Trying to build the following 6.3 server need help

I have a need to build a server with the following configs and am looking for anybody that can help me step by step processes of how to do this. Please understand I am a bit of a newbie at this but any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have a Dell Precision P390 running Centos 6.3 64 bit currently installed

1. Need to know how to manually install Nvidia driver
2. What are the best repositories for the next steps and what order should i add them or does it matter?
3. Need to set this up to be a DHCP/DNS and LDAP server
4. Need to know what DVD ripping tool works best yet is still "user friendly" with CentOS
5. Need to install Ushare or other media DLNA/UPNP app such mediatomb for streaming media

that's it.

It doesn't seem clear what is or what isn't required here.
"need to build a server", "Centos 6.3 64 bit currently installed", "install Nvidia driver" and "user friendly". oh my! and

go and be wise...

To install the Nvidia driver, just download the package from Nvidia and run the installation shell script. It will prompt you through the installation process. Note that in most (but not all) cases you generally want the installer to remove conflicting X11 libraries.

As for the rest of your questions, the package in the standard CentOS repositories perhaps combined with those in the EPEL repositories (EPEL is Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux) should give you what you need.

If you do feel the need to add non-Centos repos, DO start by installing/setting up yum-priorities, or your system will break eventually.
