Default newbie with error


I'm new at Fedora10. And I was looking to install a nvidia driver. I downloaded the right driver and tried to install it. But it gave an error about an X server that is running and needs to be closed.

I don't know what it is, where to close it, .....

ERROR: You appear to be running an X server; please exit X before installing.
For further details, please see the section INSTALLING THE NVIDIA DRIVER
in the README available on the Linux driver download page at

I went looking on the site they gave but it is to confusing for me.

Who can explain it in simple procedure??
