Default RedHat EES 4 how to install drivers for 6600GT

Hi folks,

I need some help for installing the nVidia 6600 GT graphics driver on my machine running RedHat ES 4 update 2. I downloaded the driver from the nvidia web site, but there are no Howto's for redhat.

Thanks,

Kresimir

The driver installation instructions are not specific to any distribution. Did you attempt what was specified in the README?

Thanks,
Lonni

Lonni,
thank you for the quick response. What README file do you mean? There is no such file with the driver distribution. Well, I suppose I can work something out with the SUSE Howto's, however it is a bit different than with redhat.

Thanks,

Kresimir

From http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-8178.html (the page where you downloaded the driver), I mean this README:
http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/L...DME/index.html

Thanks,
