Howdy,
I am trying to update an Nvidia driver but when I run it I get an error that tells me to stop the Xserver, I know very little about linux. How can I get my driver updated?

Do this:
Press CTRL- ALT- F2


Then login as root:
Login: root
Password: ****** (root's password)
Then type:telinit 1


Now we will need to log back in with root:
Login: root
Password: ****** (root's password)

(thanks to MasterC @ LQ for letting me copy this ) :)
