really stupid question

or at least a question that makes me feel really stupid haha

im in the middle of installing my nvidia drivers (the hard way) as posted in this forum and i get stuck after the init 3 when im in root… in the console, i dont know what to type for the command to run my nvidia update, i put the .run on my desktop… ive tried username/desktop/ and some other combinations (obviously with the appropriate names)

gah! >.<

Place the diver file in your /home/username*

Now restart and at the boot screen, pause the boot by moving the down button, then move back up and clear any text in the boot arguments by holding backspace. Then just type the number: 3
At the login
Login with your username and password

Now switch to super user with su
and root password

*Now remember you can use the {TAB} key to auto complete

so type:
and the whole file name should auto complete

eg: sh

Follow the installer and let it compile the kernel module for you.
Say Yes to everything
Use TAB to move around


lots to learn lots to learn
