In my opinion, that is another issue.
My box also crashed at the end of the installation, when i tried to do it while a nvidia driver was loaded into memory.
Now, i set the driver to «nv» into xorg.conf and re-start X ( xdm), or stop the X server and unload nvidia, before installing the new driver.
