GeForce2 MX/MX400 PCI Driver??
I am running Suse Linux 8.2 & I am only a really really newbie to Linux - my Teacher at TAFE told me to get onto the Nvidia site & download the drivers for my video card... I am lost as to what to download or even where to get it from...
If there is anyone out there that can help... PLEASE do.
Thanking you in advance,

You want the ia32 version of the driver. http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-5336.html
Here are the instructions from the Suse NVIDIA installer document link on that page.
II. SuSE Linux 8.2
SuSE Linux Desktop (SLD)
1) Kernel sources must be installed and configured. Usually this means
installing the 'kernel-source' package with YaST2, update it - if not
already done - via YaST2 Online Update (YOU) and configure it then
with the following commands:
make cloneconfig && make dep
2) Use the nvidia installer for 1.0-5336.
3) Configure XFree86 with
sax2 -m 0=nvidia (0 is a digit, not a letter!)
NOTE: There is no need to try to enable 3D support. It's already
enabled, when the nvidia driver is running. Ignore the
misleading error message, that 3D support can't be enabled.
This problem will be fixed with SuSE > 9.0 and is related to the
latest nvidia driver release.
Good luck -
