To download and install the drivers, follow the steps below:

STEP 1: Review the NVIDIA Software License and documentation. You will need to accept this license prior to downloading any files.
NVIDIA Software License
README - Text Version

STEP 2: Download the Driver File
Download - NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run

Note: If you are using SuSE 8.1 or earlier, or if you are using United Linux 1.0, we recommend installing from RPMs built by SuSE.  These are available via ftp. If you install via the .run file, XFree86 configuration with SaX2/YaST2 will not work correctly. For more information, see the NVIDIA Installer HOWTO for SuSE Linux at http://www.suse.de/en/private/download/xfree86/index.html.

STEP 3: Check dependencies
The dependencies are listed in the README. It is important to note that the NVIDIA driver set requires XFree version 4.0.1 or greater. If this is not available on your linux distribution, please go to the XFree86 web site (www.xfree86.org).

STEP 4: Install
Type "sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run" to install the driver.
See the README (text) for more detailed instructions. If you have any questions or problems, please check the linux discussion forum. If you don't find an answer to your question there, you can send email to linux-bugs@nvidia.com.
