For the installing the driver under SuSE Linux 8.2 exists a help-file in german. The link you can find in the download- area of the drivers.

Here in short- form, what stands in this file:

- close your X- session
- jump to console 1 (Ctrl+ Alt+ F1)
- login as root
- switch to runlevel 3 (init 3)
- cd- ing to /usr/src/linux (cd /usr/src/linux)
- command: make cloneconfig && make dep
- cding in the directory, where the file was downloaded ( for example cd /home/disastermaster/public_html/drivers/nvidia)
- sh
- run sax with special options (sax2 -m 0=nvidia [0 is a digit, not a letter! and it stands for the slot where the card is in)
- and now, its very important! let stand the monitor on 60 Hz !
- test the server, correct the picture
- edit the file /etc/X11/XF86Config with an editor (for example joe /etc/X11/XF86Config)
- search the section Section "Monitor" and edit the lines with HorizSync und VertRefresh (for example
HorizSync "31-60"
VertRefresh "50-75"
- save the file (joe= Ctrl+k+x)
- switch to runlevel 5 (init 5)

Thats all.
