Default Problems with installing my 7800gs

Hi... I'm a totally new Linux user, and I'm using Ubuntu.
But my problem is that i can't install the driver from the nvidia website website. If i follow the instructions at the download-page and write "sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9755-pkg1.run" I get the answer "sh: Can't open NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9755-pkgl.run".
And of course i did some research, at http://nvidia.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/n...i=&p_topview=1

And if i follow the instructions at that page, i get the answer
"sudo sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9755-pkg1.run --extract only
Verifying archive integrity... OK
Uncompressing NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86 1.0-9755.............................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ..................................
./nvidia-installer: unrecognized option `--extract'

Invalid commandline, please run `./nvidia-installer --help` for usage
information."

Ask if you need more info, and i will do my best to answer

I really hope somebody can help me.
Cheers from Morten, Denmark

Code:
sh: Can't open NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9755-pkgl.run
        Should be 1, not l -----------------^
Code:
sudo sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9755-pkg1.run --extract only
                   Should be -, not space ------------^

When you research info you might check the date of it. The info you reference is dated 11/04: ancient history in LinuxLand.
Best method in Ubuntu is to install ENVY; available in Synaptic Package Manager. It will take care of the whole business for you.
Good luck.

Glad you got fixed. It might be helpful to all if you posted more detail on your fix. If ENVY did not work in Ubuntu (Feisty, I assume) that would be very interesting. "Broken" after ENVY install? How was it broken?
What was the "fix"? Just the typo in the NV script?
Thanks.
