My card is NVS 3100M, supporting CUDA. When I install the driver using Hardware driver search it take only 195…series driver, its not supporting for CUDA3.2.
according the guide, i did sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop to stop GUI , then i could not continue to run # sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-260.19.26.run
Please anyone can help to solve this…

Finally I did same as you, But Nvidia installer identified the Nouveau kernel and did not pass, then I have added a disable-nouveau.conf file to add nouveau kernel in blacklist. Then my installation was successful.
But my headache now is, I dont get display now!!! i rebooted many times…
I try with recovery boot also… no display…
Pls help me to the display back!!! should i use CD to boot and recover???

This nvidia guide also helped me.
You have to disable Nauveau in boot and also in some systems you have to off X server too by editing xconf file in X11 folder.
Hopefully it will help someone.
Lets rock with CUDA!!!
The easiest way I found to install this new driver under Ubuntu 10.04 is the following:
Extract the driver without installing first:
Get the driver from nvidia.com
While running X, select System -> Administration->Hardware Drivers
this will search for hardware requiring proprietary drivers
select the one with [most recent]
This will download and install the drivers
If not installed yet, copy libcuda and libglx to their places.
Reboot and you have the new driver installed and cuda enabled.
