auto install of nvidia driver



Greetings;

Attached is a script I've been running for about a month, and which 
autoinstalls the nvidia driver when booting to a new kernel, something I do 
fairly frequently such as to the 2.6.22 I just built.  This assumes the 
latest NVIDIA-*.run file is resident in your root directory but it could live 
anywhere by editing the script.  You'll also need to edit it when you have 
downloaded an even newer version.

This to me was easier than trying to figure out the documentless dkms 
installer.

I run it from rc.local with this line:
/root/bin/install-nvidia

Now. if I had a clue, which I don't, I'd redirect another file to this such 
that all the keyboard responses it needs are also automated.
