Default NO drivers installed yet and X acts a bit funny

I am a complete and utter newbie to Linux. I have just recently installed Mandrake 8.0,... soon to install 9.0. My problem is X will work, its just doesn't display properly at all. I click the start menu (I guess thats what its called?) and only the icons will appear. Windows that I have closed or no longer looking at stay on top of everything else, and some windows I cannot see anything. Should I install drivers for my graphics card or will that not clear up my problem?

PS- I have no idea how to install this,... what other then the two files on the Nvidia webpage to download,... basically explain it to me as simple as you possibly can?
