You can't get X working so Linux is retarded? Christ.

Anyway the basic steps to install the drivers are:

1) Install the kernel driver and GLX files. I usually use the tar.gz files because they're simple (and I don't use RedHat).

2) The first step should load the kernel driver, type lsmod to see if 'nvidia' is in the list, if not type 'modprobe nvidia' and it should load.

3) Edit /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 and change the driver from 'nv' to 'nvidia'.

4) Start up X.

There are other things you can do to tweak things, mainly XF86Config-4 entries, but they're not necessary to get a working setup.
