Default nvidia card listed supported but error when loding module

hey everybody,

i had a problem with wine and somebody suggested to update my nvidia-drivers from 1.0.9629 to 1.0.9742.

to upgrade wasn't a problem. but when i tried to "modprobe nvidia" it said that nvidia.ko could not be found.
message output said:

Nov 12 20:20:51 endeavor nvidia: module license 'NVIDIA' taints kernel. 
Nov 12 20:20:51 endeavor NVRM: The NVIDIA GeForce3 Ti 200 GPU installed in this system is 
Nov 12 20:20:51 endeavor NVRM: supported through the NVIDIA Legacy drivers. Please 
Nov 12 20:20:51 endeavor NVRM: visit for more 
Nov 12 20:20:51 endeavor NVRM: information. The 1.0-9742 NVIDIA driver will ignore 
Nov 12 20:20:51 endeavor NVRM: this GPU. Continuing probe... 
Nov 12 20:20:51 endeavor NVRM: No NVIDIA graphics adapter found!
the thing is: lists my card as supported for nvidia-drivers and up until now i always used the nvidia-drivers. i can't really make heads or tail of this. do i need the legacy drivers? are they as good as the nvidia-drivers? are they being actively developed? did i miss something?

endeavor hasardeur # cat /proc/driver/nvidia/cards/0 
Model:           GeForce3 Ti 200 
IRQ:             5 
Video BIOS: 
Card Type:       AGP 
DMA Size:        32 bits 
DMA Mask:        0xffffffff

thanks for your time and help.
