ok download the file and close X Windows (mandrake users usually have it load on boot)

in the console go to the dir where you put the .run file then type
sh <filename>.run

follow the on screen instructions, then you have to edit your XF86Config file according to the readme, its just 2 lines easy as pie.

Or, just look in the Linux forum. It's jam-packed of Tasty Answers about Windows and nVidia products.

OK, so it's actually about Linux. I just wanted to make you go "WHA?!" for about 2.6 seconds.

well you could either edit your /etc/inittab to boot to console which would be id:3:initdefault or if your using mandrake you can press ctrl-alt-f1 and type /etc/init.d/dm stop and install the drivers...i'd advise you to do what i mentioned first just in case something goes wrong and you can recover easier....when you follow all steps and install the drivers all you do is type "startx" at console and see if your a successor :P
