nvidia installation problem

Put the word "sudo" at the beginning of your command. It will ask for your password and you will be in root.

Unless there is a reason not

Unless there is a reason not to use the package, I would use synaptic and install the "nvidia-glx" driver package.  It works great on my system and you don't have to worry about the manual installation runaround.
