They should installed already.
Code: Select all
equo search nvidia-drivers

If for some reason they aren't:
Code: Select all
#equo install nvidia-drivers

Finally, make sure they are set to be used:
Code: Select all
eselect opengl list

If it isn't:
Code: Select all
eselect opengl set nvidia

Thanks for this succinct answer. This is the proprietary drivers right?

The wiki should be updated since it's explanation on how to do this involves portage and the 2.4 kernel.
