Angry FreeBSD 5 & NVidia Video driver

I am new to FreeBSD Linux......
Wound any one help me with the GUNZIP error:

GUNZIP NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86-1.0-4365.tar.gz

I get:
invalid compressed data--format violated

I downloaded directly from my newly installed FreeBSD 5.0
using FTP.

Any suggestions, syntax error?

Please advise! Thanks!

Short answer...

wrong forum, broken zip look for a mirror.

Oh, and it's "FreeBSD". I don't think linux has anything to do with it?

tar xvzf NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86-1.0-4365.tar.gz
Rather than downloading use the port.

cd /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver/
make install clean
or if you have portinstall...

portinstall nvidia-driver
Make sure you read every line of the INSTALL instructions.
