I'm new to linux and I was trying to install my Nvidia drivers I ran the installer outside of the xserver and It said it compiled a new kernel(got to 100%) but then it would give me a Fail message. The log is too big to post... Help Please!!! Thanks in Advance. ???

You don't have to compile anything to install Nvidia drivers. Just use Apt-get, Aptitude, Synaptic, or Adept (if you must) to install the "linux-restricted-modules-<your-kernel>", "nvidia-glx", and (optionally), "nvidia-kernel-*" packages, where <your-kernel> is the output of the command "uname -r". Then, to enable the driver, run "sudo nvidia-glx-config enable". This will rewrite the important "driver" line of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file from "nv" to "nvidia".
