Said it was successful, but on reboot, in the log it said module nvidia.so
failed to load, no screens found. But it was looking very promising.

I know that this isnt the hardcore way of doing things but you could
check out a little prog called envy.
python script that automates the whole process.

would you like the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for
your kernel from the NVIDIA ftp site (ftp://download.nvidia.com)? I tell it
to, but it can't find them. It says it wants to compile new files, I say
yes, then it fails with:
