Default 4180 vs 3123 drivers - generic nv or nvidia.o branch??

OK did I download the right stuff? I got tarballs of Athlon drivers, NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4180 and NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4180 - these packages are

1) Not precompiled RPMs (OK, I can deal with that)

2) The new driver is nv.o and not nvidia.o, right? Is the 4180 version a new branch of the "generic" nv driver? Or a update to the NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123 nvidia.o driver I already have?

The old generic nv driver works fine with my MX400 but doesn't support GL. The 3123 nvidia.o is faster - but it's started crashing a lot.

I guess I'm asking "which is more stable? The 3123 nvidia.o or the 4180 nv.o?
