Default Automating the Nvidia driver install

I was wondering what sugguestions you might have for automating the install of the Nvidia Linux driver. My company is currently in the process of setting up a large number of Linux boxes using Nvidia cards. Currently I automate our Redhat installation using kickstart. I would like to somehow script in the driver installation to this process.

Is there a way to run the installer with command line options so that the install doesn't require user intervention? That would be the most ideal.

I suppose the other two possibilities are to 1) extract the contents of the driver and copy the files directly to there respective locations, however I'm not sure what files get copied and where. 2) extact the contents of the driver and script out a "make install" using the Makefile method. This would pose one problem, some of our machines are dual-processored and have two kernels installed (one normal, one smp).

Has anyone done this, or have sugguestions for doing it? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Andy

Default solution

Well, after discovering the --advanced-options, I think I answerd one of my questions. For those interested in automating the install, it appears you can just run the installer with the following options:
--no-questions --accept-license --ui=none

I still want to determine how to install the nvidia module for two (or more) installed kernels. I'm assuming I'll have to set it up to copy the second module to the appropriate /lib/modules location manually (er, via a script). I have yet to test this, but hopefully it works.
