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.
