Jep, this should work as well:

Run the installer first. Then: "./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-6111-pkg2.run
-x" will extract the whole driver package without running the installer.
Now copy everything in "NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-6111-pkg2/usr/lib/" over
to /usr/lib/. Perhaps you should run ldconfig after that to update the
lib cache.
Usual disclaimer ("this might break your system, kill your dog, start
WWIII" and so on...) applies here as well, so use with care.
