Re: legacy Nvidia 256 gentoo linux please help
I think what you are looking for is 7174
I have the same card and I was running gentoo on it but now I'm over on slackware.
I used a simply mepis (that spelled right?) and they had the drive need on the cd and that worked well. Nvidia's website can be hard to find anything on so you can google for it or try pulling it off a simply mepis or pclinuxoc cd.
