Default GeForce Go 7400 on Sony VGN-SZ1VP/C laptop


I've recently installed Suse10.0 OSS on the Sony VGN-SZ1VP/C and all seems OK apart from the video card (Nvidia GeForce Go 7400) recognition.

I've downloaded the Nvidia Linux driver (1.0-8762) and followed the install instructions.

Unfortunately I've fallen on the first hurdle.

The Nvidia script tells me:

"You do not appear have an NVIDIA GPU supported by the 1.0-8762
NVIDIA Linux graphics driver installed in this system. For further
details, please see the appendix SUPPORTED NVIDIA GRAPHICS CHIPS in
the README available on the Linux driver download page at"

The card is supported as stated in the documentation!!!

What can I do???

TIA for any advice.

I'm currently using a VESA driver but I want to use the NVIDIA driver because I want to run an external monitor with the laptop.
