graphic card problem

hello every one,
i own a HP Pavalion DV6114tx notebook pc, that has nvidia graphic card and full fledge support for openGL,
i am a game programmer and willing to learn openGL and tying it on my Suse 10.2.
problem is when i run glxinfo command it says hardware rendering not supported,
that is because nvidia graphic card is not installed properly.
when i install nvidia driver it says xserver running.
when i run some program on linux my desktop colors will be distracted (e.g. all the icons will have changed colors, text colors are changed, and others more..)
how should i install my driver in suse10.2
or how to boot machine on shell instead of gui.

needed urgent help.

for your future reference (you don't need this for the easy way to install):

to go into text mode, Alt+control+F1 to F6; F7 brings you back to the gui. in a terminal, log in as root and type "init 3" init is the father of all processes, and the number indicates the runlevel of the machine (function level, 3 is text with multi user, 5 is gui with multi user. 0 is shut down, 6 is reboot. various services turn on/off with each runlevel. There is a run level 1, single user text mode. 2 and 4 are for user-definition)

you may also boot to text by typing a 3 at the boot loader.
