Linux Roadblocks

I have just made the transition to Kubuntu Linux(32-bit), and have hit a few roadblocks that I need help with. Here is the list:

1) Unable to play video files in Kaffiene - gstreamer sucks, but I don't know how to properly install the xine-lib package and engine for it.

2) Unable to install Nvidia's drivers (Geforce video card - 32 bit Linux) Probably my fault, but I just spent 1 hour trying to install it according to the readme but to no avail.

3) Unable to get my Creative Sound Blaster Live! 24-bit sound card working. Working on integrated right now. Quite painful.

That is about it for now. Any solutions to these problems would be greatly appreciated,. But I must warn you that I am a complete newb when it comes to using Linux - so please provide very detailed instructions (aka: dummy friendly)

Thanks for your time!
