To the best of my knowledge, the first real driver set with GF4 support was 27.42. There might be an earlier set, but I think this was the first driver that manufacturers actually shipped with their cards.

27.20 was the first set that supported the GF4.

Drivers after 27.42 and somewhere just before the 29.xx set had big slowdowns in Unreal Tournament, and other DX7 problems. Some games didn't work on 27.42 (Darkstone would CTD, although UT ran at full speed). There was an MS DOS based problem that wasn't fixed until after 29.42 (probably the 30.xx series). And more DOS based problems occur in the 40.xx series, but mainly involve corruption and some crashes (which bring down the OS) launching windows programs from a DOS prompt.

This is with the 98 driver set, BTW
