Default SuSE linux problems

I am a newbie to linux and I am trying to play a game called ArmyOps. I need to install my graphics accelerator for it to work right. I downloaded the drivers and I tried to install them in the terminal and I get an error saying I have to retart Xserver. I restarted my computer and tried again and it said the same thing.

What's wrong?

Thanks

You don't have an open X session when you are trying to install do you?
what you need to do is go into commandline mode ("init 3" command) and then install. Then run "sax2 -m 0=nvidia" and configure everything. Save settings and run "init 5". All of this needs to be done with root. By the way, since the linux kernal is module based (not monolithic like windows) you only need to reboot your computer after upgrading your kernel.

I don't think so, what is it?

Do you want to run that whole thing by me one more time ?
