Question Driver load on install of SuSE 8.2

How do I install the drivers at the install?
The download is a package that has to be unpacked first, after the OS is up and running, correct?

Cool Easy

Youre speaking of the graphics driver right?

If you installed SuSE 8.2 out of the box and didnt make any kernel update then do the following:

Download the file from www.nvidia.com and save it on...lets say the root desktop

open a console as root and end KDE with the command init 3

log in as root again in textmode

type sh /root/Desktop/nameofnvidiadriver.run

and install the driver that way

after install type init 5 to return to KDE again

open SaX2 and enable hardware acceleration

It is correct, but what is the problem?
You can install Linux first, and then install the driver.
