Wow, what an excellent howto! I have installed many a system and they worked. Having said that, methods vary and while I would some things differently, others are simply great!

However, don't you have to give executive rights to the NVIDIA installer using the
Code: Select all
chmod  +x <path to file/filename>
command in order to successfully carry out the following?
Ctrl+Alt+F1
login: root
Password: <enter your root password>

# /etc/init.d/kdm stop
# cd /home/michael <insert your username, of course>
# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9746-pkg2.run
I always thought it was a basic security feature of any linux system that "foreign" scripts were saved without executive privileges!?!
