Arrow How to install Nvidia Geforce 7300 for LINUX

Hello..
Im new to linux and linux driver installation and been having some strange things happning with this graphic card..
I have Asus AM2 M2N-E mother board ( nvidia chipset ) , AMD 64bit CPU..
I did install linux Ubuntu on this system without any problme.. although didn't install the driver for this GPU, i had agreat resolution and also my sound and network worked,
I since remove the linux, and partitioned my HD and have daul booted with winxp 64 .. now , my NIC and sound not working .. aside from tons of problmes with windows with this graphic card,
I was wondring can anyone please ,, help me install the driver for linux ??

I did that once, during installation ,i was warrned that linux was missing stuff , such as kernel , development sdk and stuff in that nature. so please tell me what should i install first ( all there is to ) in linux , and then how to install the driver from shell .

I greatly appreciate this, since i can no longer stand window ..
sorry win guys.. .. just love the way linux is .

I have a very similar system. nforce chipset onboard.
sound is completely broken at current development for x86_64 it seems. network runs with the forcedeth from nvidia/kernel. I also habe a Geforce 7300 gt. The driver from nvidia does is not recognized by the xserver, and support doesn't seem to have a clue if the problem is with the xorg or the driver. Only chance to work: use the "nv" driver in the xorg.conf. I know, it's a shame to run a geforce 7300 without 3d support, but nvidia is unable to resolve the current problem.
(my problem is listed here for comparison

newgen23,
The problem that you reported seems to be specific to your environment, and is not a driver bug, as your X server cannot find the driver.

tonysar,

Thanks,

"as your X server cannot find the driver. "

As posted in my thread above, the driver is found by the xorg server.
(see the strace)
The server is simply not able to open/use the driver. Should I report the problem to the Xorg Forum?
