Help Installing display drivers
I recently made the decision to install Ubuntu as I was fed up with windows. I'm taking a crash course, so please be patient. I downloaded the nvidia display drivers for linux I believe the file is X86. I have no idea where to set up the drivers so that I can get a higher resolution than 800X600. Can anyone help?

Re: Help Installing display drivers
If you installed Ubuntu, then you should be able to automatically install the Nvidia drivers within the distribution. Usually, it will display an icon in the tray asking you if you want to do this. If not, just look for "Restricted Drivers Manager" or "Jockey" in the System menu. In this program, you will be able to install it automatically just by selecting it and clicking Enable. Also, if you are not running the Jaunty beta, I recommend you do this because it contains some relatively significant updates for the Nvidia driver, and it will be released quite soon.
