Default Need explanation of options for NVIDIA driver install

I have used the install instructions from mjmwired.net to install 8178 under 2.6.14-1.1656_FC4 and 2.6.15-1.1830_FC4 (with slight modification). It suggested using -a after the command e.g. sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8178-pkg1.run -a. I also found a website (fedoranews.org/mediawiki) suggesting that upgrades be done using ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8178-pkg1.run -aqn. This failed as I had not extracted the files, so I extrapolated/guessed that I should use sh .... -aqn which worked after my update to the 1830 kernel. All is fine and everything works as expected. However, I cannot find the explanations of -a or -aqn.

Any hints where they are.
