http://porteus.org/porteus-mirrors.html eg. http://ftp.nluug.nl/os/Linux/distr/port ... x86_64.xzm
that is : nvidia-470.42.01-k.5.12.14 for relatively recent cards @ last five/six years?
legacy drivers for older cards require patching for newer kernels and that's a bit tricky...

Place the downloaded .xzm module into your modules folder or extramod= folder and reboot.
