    Absolutely not! The RPMs are for installing directly. Go to a shell, become root ("su -"), and run "rpm -ihv filename", where filename is the name of the RPM file.

    go here and read the instructions, these are the latest nforce drivers:

    http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?IO=linux_nforce_1.0-0248

    also, I think dolda meant to type...

    Code:
    rpm -ivh filename
    not -ihv

    read the instructions on the nvidia site first before doing anything.

    What, exactly, is it that you're trying to type, Timdog? Anyway, this is the documentation:
    http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86_4...e-1.0-0248.txt

    yowwww, you are aware that options can come in any order, right? "-ihv" is just as valid as "-ivh", "-i -v -h" and even "-hvi".

    Ok here is what I am doing. I downloaded the Red Hat 8.0 drivers and burned them to a cd. Then I put the cd in my server and boot up. I log in as root and type in cd NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.rh80up_2.4.18_14.athlon.rpm . Then it says bash cd: NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.rh80up_2.4.18_14.athlon.rpm no such directory or file.

    Any ideas?

    u cant cd into an rpm file. cd stands for change directory, its the same as double clicking a folder in windows ro whatever ur used to. and it only works on DIRECTORIES not individual files

    u want to cd into the directory containing this NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.rh80up_2.4.18_14.athlon.rpm file, then type
    rpm -ivh NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.rh80up_2.4.18_14.athlon.rpm

    or better way is to type
    rpm -ivh NV
    then press tab, this way u r sure to get the file name correct.

    Uh I don't know what directory it is in. So what exactly should I type if I have the RH8.0 drivers on a cd?
