Angry Too many install problems nivida linux amd64 driver

OK i downloaded the newest version of nivida linux driver for AMD64 NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-6111-pkg2.run and first it said i wasnt running on x86 64 but indeed im on x86 w/ AMD64 so anyways comment out that exit; in the code and then the md5 and chk sums failed hade to go comment out all those exit's; so now when i run it i get this error:

Uncompressing NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86_64 1.0-6111
gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-6111-pkg2.run: line 648: 16001 Broken pipe tail -n +$skip $0

./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-6111-pkg2.run: line 616: ./nvidia-installer: No such file or directory

so i thought ok problem in code so i went and downloaded an older version tried that (NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-6106-pkg2.run)

but with that one i get this problem:
Uncompressing NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86_64 1.0-6106.............................................. ..........................
gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file

./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-6106-pkg2.run: line 608: ./nvidia-installer: cannot execute binary file

so yeah anybody know what i can do here.. and why (atleast it seems to be) so badly coded is my next question? errr just want to get this working. thanks.

Steve.
