Question How do I know which driver to download?

I just installed Mandrake 9.0 on my Dell Inspiron 2650 laptop and am a linux newbie. This laptop has a nVidia GeForce2 Go 100 video adapter. It is not clear to me which driver I need to download as the download page doesn't mention particular cards. I would like the latest and greatest driver. What should I download?

All drivers work for all nVidia cards. It does not matter one bit which card you have. The README does in fact state this.

There is also an NVchooser.sh program that you can use to tell you which files to download. It's linked straight off the driver page (The If you are unsure of which file you need please download and run NVchooser sentence), or at the end of this: clicky.
