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
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.
