Default How do you install nVidia drivers for Athlon64?

Hi all.

I'm relatively new to linux (used SUSE Linux a few year ago, but that was just out of the box....didn't do anything fancy with it).

I just built an Athlon64 system this weekend (ASUS K8V Deluxe motherboard with an Athlon64 3200+ chip). I'm using my older graphics card at the moment (it's a Gainward nVidia GeForce3Ti450 card).

System is running Mandrake 9.2 for the Athlon64 (downloaded off an ftp site, did not purchase).

I downloaded the nVidia drivers for the Athlon64. The directions say that you have to run a file that ends in ".run"; however, I can't find it. When I unzipped and extracted the tar files, I didn't have a .run file.

Do I need to download another utility file?
Does anyone have a nice step by step tutorial for installing the nVidia drivers onto an Athlon64 system (know of a nice tutorial link)?

Thanks for any help that you can give to a Linux rookie.
