Go to Nvidia's site, and download their linux driver,

Follow the instructions. It will compile a version of
the driver and install in your kernel (don't worry

edit your x config (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and change
Driver "nv" to Driver "nvidia".
Startx, run glxgears in the terminal, if you get the
permissions problem, run the permission commands:
chmod 0666 /dev/nvidia*
chown root /dev/nvidia*
