    download the README file from nvidia where you downloaded the driver and follow the install directions in the README file.

    Try the following:

    sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-180

    It installs the 180.11 version driver.
    I did it on Ubuntu 8.10 and it worked.Dunno about 8.04 though.......

    I also tried installing the nvidia 180.29 drivers but my xserver broke and had to uninstall the driver. I guess you'll have to do some configuration first......
