Not a problem, Rusty. Start Synaptic. Do a search for nvidia, or just go directly to x11-driver-video-nvidia-current package. Select it for installation. dkms-nvidia-current package should be automatically selected as a dependency. Mark all dependencies for installation, then apply. After packages are installed, close Synaptic and reboot. The first reboot will take a while, as the nVidia kernel modules build. To see the progress, press the Escape key at the bootsplash screen, (the screen after the GRUB boot menu screen). You'll see text on the screen as each step of the boot process completes.
I hope this works for you. What I don't understand is why the proprietary nVidia drivers weren't installed automatically when you first installed the OS. I've only installed ZenMini in a VM, so I can't really judge the behavior on real hardware.
