Question SuSE 8.2 & nVidia 3D setup problem (newbie)

I have recently bought an XFX GeForce4 MX440 AGP 8X 128Mb graphics card which works perfectly in Win 2000 (and with very little effort!).
In SuSE 8.2 (Kernel 2.4.20-4Gb-athlon), it works fine in 2D, but I can't work out what I'm meant to do to get 3D working properly. I have been working on driver version 1.0.4496, as earlier messages suggested that the later one may not work properly.
The MB is an Asus A7V133-c, with Athlon 1600 processor.
With the NVIDIA Installer, I have managed to create anv-linux.o file, but can't work out what to do with it.
The instructions say" mkprecompiled --interface=nv-linux.o nv-linux.o-mykernel precompiled/"

I don't understand this at all.

Is there an idiot version of what I need to do to get it to work on my system? I suspect that, having the nv-linux.o file that it isn't that far off being useable, but haven't the slightest idea as to what it might be.

I attach the XFree86.0.log and XF86Config.log files if it helps.
I'm fairly new to linux, so anything above idiot level may not mean much

Thanks, Graham
