Many distributions of Linux have the nVidia drivers available pre-compiled and packaged for easy install and management of the driver. It would probably be best to ask in your distro's own forums/chat rooms/email lists where to find such a package, but if you tell us your distro and version we might be able to help.

If your distro doesn't have pre-packaged drivers, go to nVidia.com and click on Download Drivers. It has a nice little install script that will compile and install the drivers for you. There are various components you will have to have installed first, such as a compiler, the kernel development files, etc... If you are new to Linux and are uncomfortable with the thought of compiling, then its probably best to try and find a distro specific package (or switch to a distro that has one).
