Default nVidia Driver on FreeBSD 8.1 x64?

Hi there.

I'd like to install the graphics driver for my nVidia GTS450 on my FreeBSD-machine. As far as I know, the driver can be installed using the ports, but I always get an error I can't recall at the moment. I'll write it down later.

Then, I downloaded the proprietary driver from nvidia.com, extracted the archive, chmodded it and tried to execute it: Permission denied. But I'm logged on as root, how can that be possible?

Thanks for your help,
