Yast & Nvidia 5200 3D driver

I went to the Nvidia download site to get the driver. Read the install message. They sat go into Yast on line updates and check the list then get it there. IT'S NOT ON THE LIST

Well, download and install the driver yourself (manually)'s not that can't depend on "yet another stupid tool" (yast)

320mb, I've downloaded the run file from Nvidia. Now got to do a little Guess what, SuSe support is no help either. lol (not a installation issue) Just buy our product! The other problem I had was when I booted back to windows my Net controller info was gone, had to reinstall driver,reconfig card. (not an installation issue) Well another newbie here helped on that. boot windows-shutdown-boot windows - Finding out this forum and google is my best friend. Oh by the way I called Compaq about the net card and driver thing. The lady there just basically said unplug your 2nd H-D and don't bother with the Linux. lol Got a freaking headache
