I just got Fedora 7 installed, and I am looking to install the new NVIDIA driver for my 8800 GTS card.

However, I have tried (following instructions..) to do this in the Terminal Console, but it tells me I need to exit the X server.

How can I do this?

The boot loader is Grub, is there something that I can edit to boot to console instead of starting the X Server at boot time?
