The drivers Suse is trying to install according to YOU is 1-0323.
I have got around the problem by downloading the RPM's. Reinstalling 8.1 and when it asks you if you want to prepare the gtaphics card for 3d I answered Yes and once booted up and running, i installed the drivers before I did anything else .It seemed that on the previous installetion once I had rebooted it changed the 3d enabled to disabled I then couldn't enable it without doing an online update. With installing them before shutting down and while yast still had the 3d enabled installing the drivers seems to have worked I know get 6000 fps on my geforce 4 with gears in a window @ 1024x768, which is more like it. Iwas only getting 200 max.
Funny thing is that yast reports now reports that 3d is disabled but it is definitely not. Tux racer now works a dream
Anyway , Thanks for replying
