That's fine, you can rerun it anytime you choose or need to.
I normally do "./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-xxx.xx.xx-pkg2.run
--keep" which keeps the directory around, so if you have a new kernel or an update that overwrites the NVidia driver, I cd into the directory and "./nvinstaller" or if it's all there and I just need a new kernel module, I cd down to the ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-xxx.xx.xx-pkg2/usr/src/nv directory and do a "make install".
