Download the package from nVidia:

http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/169.12/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-169.12-pkg2.run


Drop to runlevel three, run (as root) the package:

  #sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-169.12-pkg2.run

And it will build and install the modules you need and then install the 
driver.

Bring up runlevel 5 again and enjoy.
