Get ready for the learning curve: read nvidia's installation instructions and apply them as applicable to your linux distribution. But if it works now, why change it? Do you want to play games or something? What to do depends on your goals and hardware.

Yes, I Did install it and I followed the instructions, And I do see the Nvidia Logo at bootup, I just don't see it in my display settings as using my GForce FX 5500. It says vesa generic is what its using. Is there something I missed?

Re: GForce FX 5500 help
Probably your distribution doesn't know about nvidia drivers - it still thinks vesa is being used (what it initially installed). To verify nvidia's drivers are going fine run glxinfo and glxgears, and look at your X log (/var/log) and the files in /proc/driver/nvidia.
