Why make it you the thing so complicated....?
Hello, really I am not happy with Nvidia. I am a very old user of Nvidia cards and since I am a user of LINUX the installation of the drivers is completly a big chaos.
The procedure under SUSE Version 8.1 with the installtion through rpm packages, was difficult but after a lot of trying the installation was performed.
Now I am updated my system to SUSE 8.2 and the procedure is total diferent. Instead of rpm's we have now a so called NVIDIA-Installer.run (Why? technically is not a better solution, commertially is not efficiency)
1.- I have followed up the indications, but the installer asked for precompiled kernel interface possible to downloaded from the internet....(why if I understand correctlly these are part of the .run package or?). Because this procedure is runing in a text level (level 1) no internet comunication is possible (USB ISDN Card) and the installation failed. (Please look many thread down here, is the same case...).
2.-The installation under YAsT2 on line (A very good tool from Linux for Linux users) update wasn't sucessful under unkown details.
3.-Please give me clear details how to install the corresponding driver:
NVIDIA GeForce 4 Ti4200 64 MB (MORE THAN 200 euro)
AMD XP 2200+ CPU
Linux SUSE 8.2 Personal
4.-Please let include the driver for the Linux distributors. Commertially I don't understand there a license problem, even a better cover of market and fulfill of customer needs. !!!!!!
5.- If I don't get a solution I will change my card to one from a company with functionally drivers for Linux. Please take this seriously, you will lost a client !!!!!
Awaiting a prompt answer best regards,

Make it like this...dont use "nv" its a joke!!!
If you already have an XF86Config file working with a different driver
(such as the 'nv' or 'vesa' driver), then all you need to do is find
the relevant Device section and replace the line:
(or Driver "vesa")
In the Module section, make sure you have:
You should also remove the following lines:
