Open up a console and issue this command as root:

init 3

That will kill X and drop you to a console. Install the NVIDIA drivers 
and make the necessary changes to your XF86Config file as mentioned in 
the driver's README.

Then, as root, issue this command:

init 5

That will take you make to the X login. If X crashes when it tries to 
start, try issuing this command as root:

modprobe nvidia

For some reason when I upgrade drivers, the new driver doesn't get 
installed into the kernel for some reason. That command will do it for you.
