    How are you trying to install them? If I'm not mistaken, the nvidia-glx and nvidia-common packages are already included on the Dapper install disc. You should be able to simply apt-get them.

    ?

    Try
    Code:
    sudo apt-get clean
    sudo apt-get autoclean
    Then change & update your repositories like specified in the how-to.

    You could try pulling the packages off the online repositories for Ubuntu. Otherwise you could try installing it manually using my method:
