I am new to linux. I have never used it before and am still new to the terminology, etc. I am SO SICK OF WINDOWS so I switched. Anyway, it tells me to do this:

1) Kernel sources must be installed and configured. Usually this means
installing the 'kernel-source', 'make' and 'gcc' packages with YaST2.

2) Use the nvidia installer for 1.0-8762.

sh -q

3) Configure X.Org with

sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia (0 is a digit, not a letter!)

I have no idea what this means!? What do I do? I have SUSE Linux 10.1

Any help would be AWESOME! biggrin.gif
