Default Maybe you can help me?

I don't get my card to work.. maybe yuu can help me...
my system is:

Intel P3-700@786MHz
384Mb RAM
1 IBM DTLA-307030 30Gb harddrive
1 Seagate U6 40Gb Harddrive
Geforce 4 Ti4200 64mb

I also use Mandrake 8.2, and i have downloaded the
and i installed the rpms with rpm -ihv filename.rpm
and everything seemed to work fine.. at least it said 'Installation Successful'
and according to the readme file on nvidias homepage - i should change from driver="nv" to driver="nvidia" in the XF86Config-4
but I don't have any driver="nv" in my file.. I only have Identifier="Generic VGA"
.. in my XF86Config-4 file...
i have changed the "vga" to "nvidia" but that didn't change anything..
i have also tried to write Load="glx" in the module section, but nothing happens...

It's quite disturbing using Generic VGA as a driver.. the graphic is so laggy and slow..
When i installed Mandrake 8.2 the only gfx-cards that i could choose between was Geforce 3 and older.. no Geforce 4
so now i wonder how i shall get the Geforce 4 driver to work..

I tried all of the older geforce drivers (from geforce 3 and down to Geforce 256) but that didn't work (duh! )

Can you please give me some advice?
I'm a newbie
