Too bad those are all Windows drivers... and a buggy CSS to top it all off

The GF Go cards shouldn't be any different from the normal GeForce cards. The nVidia driver is unified, so it works with all nVidia cards.

Go to nvidia.com, hit drivers, and select GeForce and Linux IA32.

And I just realized you are asking about distro installation. The easiest thing to do with GF2 (normal) cards is to choose GeForce (generic), so that you use the "nv" XFree86 driver. However, I don't know if that driver works with GF2 Go cards, so if not, you'll have to go with the VESA generic driver during installation.

Once you get the OS installed, though (and you may not want to boot to a graphical login, as that can cause more problems than it's worth), download the nVidia drivers like I was saying above and install them (according to the README).
