problem installing the drivers..
I am using a GeForce 4 card, it's pretty old i guess now, but it works still :p I figured that since i'm using an AMD chipset, i should use the AMD64 drivers, so i downloaded them, followed the instructions to the best of my ability and quit the X server, tried to install the kernel module, and this is what i got:

cc -c -Wall -Wimplicit -Wreturn-type -Wswitch -Wformat -Wchar-subscripts -Wparentheses -Wpointer-arith -Wcast-qual -Wno-multichar -O -MD -D__KERNEL__ -DMODULE -D_LOOSE_KERNEL_NAMES -mcmodel=kernel -DNTRM -D_GNU_SOURCE -D_LOOSE_KERNEL_NAMES -D__KERNEL__ -DMODULE -DNV_MAJOR_VERSION=1 -DNV_MINOR_VERSION=0 -DNV_PATCHLEVEL=4180 -DNV_UNIX -DNV_LINUX -DNV_INT64_OK -DNV_64_BITS -DNVCPU_X86_64 -I. -I/usr/src/linux/include -Wno-cast-qual nv.c
cc1: code model `kernel' not supported in the 32 bit mode
nv.c: In function `nv_agp_translate_address':
nv.c:2756: warning: cast from pointer to integer of different size
make: *** [nv.o] Error 1

I've tried many times to get it installed but it doesn't seem to want to work. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

You should only use the AMD64 driver if you have one of AMD's 64 bit processors (currently, only the Opteron).

Use the IA-32 driver, or athlon if available.
