OK, I could download the sh script from Windows 2000, and fortunately,
the kernel I'm using supports ntfs, so that I could copy the file to
the Linux partition.

When I ran the script, it said "No precompiled kernel interface was
found to match your kernel; would you like the installer to attempt
to download a kernel interface for your kernel from the NVIDIA ftp
site (...)?". I answered "no" since the network doesn't work yet.

After installing the kernel headers and running the script with
the --kernel-include-path option set to the appropriate path,
the kernel module could be successfully compiled and installed
(in /lib/modules/2.4.18-bf2.4/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o).

Then, I put "nvidia" in /etc/modules and rebooted.

Now /sbin/lsmod says:
nvidia   1545952   0 (unused)

'ifconfig eth0' says:
eth0: error fetching interface information: Device not found

What should I do now?

Finally, I didn't need that.
