Question Which driver do I get?

Linux IA32 Display Drivers
Linux IA64 Display Drivers
Linux AMD64 Drivers

Do I assume my Athlon XP 2200+ and Red Hat Linux 7.2 can handle AMD64? I didn't see any src.rpm files.

Thank you in advance.

AMD64 drivers are for Hammer chips. Your Athlon is a 32 bit chip - therefore, you'll need to visit the IA32 page.

Andy, thanks. I think I am going to hold off this driver version due to complaints (e.g., slower 2D). It seems like there's nothing that is improved for my GeForce4 Ti 4200 (128 MB of RAM).
