    if you download the appropriate drivers from the nVidia unix drivers page: http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html
    then copy the drivers to the offline workstation (with usb drive/cd/whatever), then you should be able to install them from there. There's some instuctions on that page i think how to install the drivers too

    hope this helps, good luck with it

    Easiest thing would be to download LinuxMint. It's Ubuntu with all those proprietary drivers.

    You'll want to download the "Main Edition"

    Should be 100% compatible with Ubuntu.

    Also, a good little program for graphics card drivers is Envy.

    I know a number of people who have found it very useful
