Default Installing drivers in command line on Ubuntu 7.10 x64


I am trying to install the NVIDIA drivers for my 7800GT on Ubuntu 7.10 edgy (x64) in the command line(as I can't get the desktop to work at the moment). I have managed to extract it following the instructions, However when I get to the line "sudo ./nvidia-installer -n -s --x-prefix=/usr/lib64/xorg/ --kernel-source-path=/usr/src/linux-headers- `uname -r`"

I get the error
"./Nvidia-installer : 2 : Syntax error : ")" unexpected"

Any ideas how I can get the drivers to work? Or at least get Ubuntu to boot
to the desktop so I can install the drivers a different way?

I am trying to use the drivers
