Exclamation Which Driver do I install [Linspire]?

Hi guys. I got sick of Windows finally, and bought Linspire (formerly Lindows) this Sunday. I wanted to get my 3D card up and running so I could play my games. Sadly, when I get to the Linux driver d-load page
[http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux.html] I run into the following choices:

Graphics Drivers

Linux IA32
Latest Version: 1.0-6629
Archive

Linux IA64
Latest Version: 1.0-5336
Archive

Linux AMD64
Latest Version: 1.0-6629
Archive

FreeBSD
Latest Version: 1.0-6113

Now, I'm a total Linux newb, but I think Linspire isn't FreeBSD. However, I obviously don't know. If someone could help me out, I'd be uber appreciative.

Some info but not the entire answer.

Linux IA32
Latest Version: 1.0-6629

If I'm reading this correctly, IA32 is Intel cpu 32 bit. Which is the most common.

The other IA64 is 64bit cpu

Amd... is for AMD processor and so on.

When you figure out how to install this let me know. I understand the download and run on the driver package. It's what to do about x window setting if any is needed or how to.
