I just finally got these drivers to work with SuSE8.0 What I eventually had to do was downloaded the NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960.src.rpm file, rpm --rebuild that file, then it will print out a bunch of stuff, and create a new kernel rpm file for you. Look for a line that says Wrote - blah blah and it'll tell you where it put it. Then rpm -ivh that newly created kernel rpm file. If that all works out, then all you need is to install the regular NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-2960.suse80.i386.rpm file and install that next. Then edit the XF86config file just like it says to do. For me, I also had to add an option to the config to get mine to work.

Option "IgnoreEDID" "true"

It took me forever, basically the only problems were that I needed to install the source kernel file, instead of the stock one for SuSE8.0, and I needed to add the IgnoreEDID option. After that it ran perfect. Here's my config file too...
