Well, Slackware is not much harder... But that is my opinion and as such, you may think entirely other way But to the point:
If you are using 2.4 series kernel, what you have to do is very simple:
1) download nvidia drivers
2) unpack them
3) go into the drivers directory
4) type: make
5) type: make install
6) type: modprobe nvnet
and voila!
You may want to add '/sbin/modprobe nvnet' to your boot scripts (eg. rc.modules) so that network card driver module loads automatically.

The above also installs agp and sound support.
