Somehow you'd have to hack the nvidia drivers to recognize the device id of the nv2a (it is a mix between geforce3 and geforce4) but nvidia has added lots of boobytraps to the driver so it will be very hard (if not impossible).

These guys have played with it, I do not know how far they have made it -- or if they are still trying. If anyone manages to get the driver working I imagine it'll be found on this site quickly.

I am relatively certain the nVidia has numerous agreements with Microsoft that they would _not_ do something like put out Linux drivers for the X-Box.
