    Not sure if I understand you correct, Mack.
    But if you have installed NVIDIA-Linux-*-*.run before, then all you need to do is run it again with the option kernel-module only:
    # NVIDIA-Linux-*-*.run --kernel-module-only (or # NVIDIA-Linux-*-*.run -K)

    If you want to update the entire driver:
    # NVIDIA-Linux-*-*.run --update

    And you are not interested in DKMS?

    # NVIDIA-Linux-*-*.run --dkms:

    nvidia drivers usually take out bugs and potential security threats as well, I have never seen them sitting heavy even on my laptop but now unless I need a gaming rig, I am quite satisfied with the new generation Sandy Bridge video performance. Major codecs get h/w acceleration via VLC so HDMI is a breeze.
