you can run it from anywhere as root

about the other stuff, you should ignore vesa/nv/noveau prompts, actually it's better to just select nv, run the downloaded driver and at the last prompt ( presuming that the install part worked out ok ) will ask you if you want to set up your xorg.conf ( or something ) and you will choose yes so that in the xorg.conf nv will be replaced with nvidia
then reboot to be sure and it should just work

well, if it does not then go see your CentOS docs on how to: http://wiki.centos.org/HardwareList/Nvidia_Graphics
