Question Installing thru yast2? in SuSE 8.1 are you kidding me?!

before I try to update my current driver from the 3123 driver I installed with YOU, I want to ask any of you SuSE 8.1 users if I should take SuSE's advice and install from yast2 or if I should be a good boy and default to runlevel 3 and install the rpms from the command line, the way the readme on nVidia's site suggests. Or better yet, is the general consensus to use the tar.gz files isntead of the rpms? I can't seem to find any definitive method suggested here.

One note: a month ago I tried the rpm's from rl 3 and when I tried to reboot and initialize X I got a flickering black screen for a couple of seconds then nothing. just a completely locked up comp. are there any known issues with nVidia's provided bianries?

cheers, thanks in advance for any helpful hints
