You should be able to download the .run file from our FTP site and use that to install the driver.
I had a go with it but the combination of Xorg 1.8 and libvdpau (which for Gentoo is its own package with quite strong dependencies) meant that I was unable to install the driver. At least not without removing quite a few packages from the system.
Apologies there; is there anything else I can try?
