Most likely you have the script on your server already.  Who ever set it
up the first time probably has it in their home directory.

If you can not find it there then go to the nvidia web page and pull the
installer from there.  You will want to boot into runlevel 3 (someone
already described that for you in another post) then run the install
script.

Once that is done you should then be able to boot into runlevel 5 and
have X startup as it did before.

Don't expect people to keep in step--it's hard enough just staying in line.
