i doubt that anyone don't know how to install them but still i`ll take it upon my self to write a how-to:



step 1.
go to http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux.html
and download the drivers you need.... for example: NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run

Step 2.
Type "sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run" to install the driver, then edit your X86Config file as appropriate.

Step 3.
make sure that the XF86Config-4 is correctly....

use a text editor like "pico" or "nano" "mcedit" also works....

locate the XF86Config-4 file... its normally found in "/etc/X11"

then edit the place that says "device" or "driver" ... it says "nv" by default... and change it to "nvidia"... exit the editor....

And then type "startx" or "xinit" wich ever one you use....
you will see a NVIDIA logo.. when you see the logo it works :)

make sure you have installed the "kernel-headers"... or the installer wont continue...

GL! :)

You forgot to mention that in the XF86Config-4 file that if you have the commands 'Load "dri"' or 'Load "GLcore"' that they need to be deleted and the command 'Load "glx"' needs to be added if it's not there already.
