I downloaded a driver from NVIDIA's site, it was a .run file,
which I had no previous experience with. After searching I found a
readme for the driver online. I folowed the instructions (after several tries)
and got the driver to start unpacking. After about 1 second It told me that I had to be logged in as root user (In Linux "root user" is a specal mode in which you can do anything with the system. As you can picture, it is very dangerous to use this mode, since you could "brick" your system with a mis-typed word!) I had to spend some more time looking through the manual. I found how to do it and redid the instructions.
It told me that it "could not open the file".

The only thing that does not work is the screen resolution, I can't seem to
change it to above 800x600.
I've got to get a driver for my graphics card.
Other than that it seems to work fine!
