    Try mount /mnt/cdrom, then cd to /mnt/cdrom.

    ok I typed in "mount /mnt/cdrom" and it thought for a minute and then went back to the prompt from before. Then I typed "sh (drivername)" and it said that file or directory does not exist. What do I have to do to run the driver from the dvd?

    Serz had 2 commands for you.

    mount /mnt/cdrom mounts the cdrom

    cd /mnt/cdrom changes the directory to cdrom

    After the 2nd command, do

    ls /mnt/cdrom that will list what is on the cdrom

    Ok, I got it to run the file, but it says that I don't have the right kernel compiler installed, I need gcc. I guess I'll have to re-install and co through the packages one by one and find what I need.

    Ok, I installed every package that Mandriva has in it, and it still doesn't work. It says that i need the "precompiled kernal" and tries to go to the nvidia ftp site to get it. What file do I need?
