For me it did not work to install them through YAST.

Go to the nvidia site and download the shar
archive. Also read this

Things to be aware of ...

Boot into the machine at runlevel 3 and log in as root.

Make sure you have installed a full set of kernel sources BEFORE you run the
shar script as it needs the kernel headers to compile the driver module.

The sax2 step takes a LONG time. During that time there is no progress
indicator just a total blank screen. I have a 2.5GHz Pentium and the first
time I aborted because I thought it was hung ... JUST WAIT.

When you are successful you should see the Nvidia splash screen for a second
before the X splash screen.

Hope this helps
