Default Newb Install

Sorry if this has came up before.. I am sure it has but I couldn't find it using the search.

I am just getting started with linux and i am wondering how to install this video driver. I have an emachine with GeForce 6 series graphics card. I have downloaded the driver and now i am stuck. It says to run a command and i did in terminal. I don't know if that is right or not... it wouldn't do anything.

Once again sorry about this.
Thanks,
Blake

Please see the 'Installing the NVIDIA Driver' section in the NVIDIA Linux graphics driver's README for installation instructions.
