Default GeForce FX 5700LE in GNU/Linux Ubuntu

Hi, i'm spanish and i have a problem .

I think that it's impossible put the official driver in Linux Ubuntu with
Yes, now the graphic card goes OK but not EXCELLENT. I need install with the
official driver for have the 3d accelerated graphics and play games .
I give details for help me in the problem:
GNU/Linux Ubuntu Breezy Badger 5.10 with KDE and GNOME.
Graphic card: GeForce FX 5700LE with XORG XSERVER.
Kernel version: 2.6.12-10-386
If people can reply me with a HOWTO installing nvidia 100%

I test the official driver: 1.0-8178
without packages of: nvidia, xorg-xserver
without packages of: nvidia, xorg-xserver

I think so, the problem (testing a lot) is the GLX, bad installed or bad version, I don't know.
I edit the xorg.conf with vi and:
I deleted: Load "dri" and Load "GLcore"
I created/modified: Load "glx"
I edit: "nv" to nvidia
When I change the xorg.conf the gdm can't start.

Perhaps Ubuntu can't install the official driver, some people use the command:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

My english is poor and basic, sorry, I have 15 years and my school is a s*** because I live in spain

Thank you for read my message and help me if you can
