Default how to install nvidia drivers on ubuntu 64-bit 10.04

How can I install the latest nvidia video drivers on my 64-bit ubuntu linux 10.04 system? I believe I need to do this to continue developing a 3D graphics engine that I put aside for several months and am now returning to.

I just installed the fresh ubuntu system and when I try to compile my previously working code, it seems to find several things missing (including GL headers and libraries) that are probably installed by the nvidia driver.

I tried to install the driver, but I can't seem to get into an appropriate console "level". I tried entering via grub "recovery mode", but the nvidia installer didn't like that because the "level" was too low (1). I tried "telinit 3" in a terminal window on the desktop but that did nothing.
