    Installing Nvidia Gforce4 MX440


    This must have been asked a thousand time but I still cant get it right.

    I am running a dual system XP pro & SuSE9.1pro (KDE 3.2 // 2.0.49_23 {no idea what this means})

    I have downloaded the latest drivers from nvidia website and saved it onto disk us o/s XP. On opening SuSE and inserting the cd i save the drivers on the file name is;
    NVIDIA-LINUX-x86_64-1.0-6111-pkg2.run

    What do I do now???

    I've tried archiving the file. Then did the following

    alt+ctrl+f1

    init 3



    "media/cdrecorder/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0.6111-pkg2.run.zip"

    also

    "media/cdrecorder/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0.6111-pkg2.run.tar.gz"

    Then i get theon of the following errors-:

    "-bash:............................................. ... No such file or directory"

    or

    "tar:Error is not recoverable:exiting now
    tar:Child returned status 2
    tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
    "

    Please help I'm getting very dispondent with the way one has to install hardware on linux.
