NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-9742-pkg2.run tells me GeForce4 440 Go 64M is a Legacy Card
When running the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-9746-pkg2.run install I get this message:
WARNING: The NVIDIA GeForce4 440 Go 64M GPU installed in this system is supported through the NVIDIA 1.0-96xx legacy Linux graphics drivers. Please visit
http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html for more information. The 1.0-9746 NVIDIA Linux graphics driver will ignore this GPU.
On this page:
The link that says 'Supported Products List':
shows my card.
The card is supported and works fine with the 96xx drivers (currently using 9631).
I'm looking for a little clean up in which cards are supported by which drivers. Ideally, some explanation of what the rational is for this change in hardware support would be helpful. Will the 96xx series drivers continue to receive AIGLX fixes and enhancements?
This display chip set is only three years old. I'm a little surprised that it's already considered legacy hardware. But, as long as I can get full support from whichever driver going forward then I guess I don't really have a problem.

Your GeForce4 440 (NV18) is supported, however its supported in the 1.0-96xx legacy driver branch. Only NV3x and newer GPUs are supported in 1.0-9746.
The driver README included with each driver details which GPUs are supported.
