it depends on your architecture and processor...

IA = Intel Architecture
therefor:
IA32 = pentium, athlon, etc.
IA64 = intel 64bit processor (?)
AMD64 = amd 64bit (opteron ?)
FreeBSD is another brand of unix-like OS, similar to linux

you have an athlon, so try the IA32

Yep, Intel calls it the Itanium.

The AMD Opteron and Athlon64 chips are AMD64's (though the Athlon64 isn't out yet, and won't be until about September, IIRC).

the IA32 seems not to work on Suse 8.0, as i read when i clicked the link. Guess I've to look deeper into it. Just was hoping some one could quickly tell me what to do and where to get the files from.
I'll have a look when I gethome from work.

Thnx anyway guyz

There is a link on the 4363 page where you can get usable drivers for SuSE 8.0 (actually, any SuSE below 8.2). They're RPMs built by SuSE.

http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?IO=li..._ia32_1.0-4363

The link points to here:

ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/1.0-4363

And there is supposedly a SuSE HOWTO here:
