Default Which Driver for my Nvidia 7300 GS?

I bought this hardware:

Mather Board Asus P5pl2 (supporting EM64T)
CPU Pentium 4 or D, 3 GHz (supporting EM64T)
Graphic Card Asus EN7300GS (GPU Nvidia 7300 GS)

But I do not uderstand which drivers should I install for Linux.

Should I install the IA32, IA64 or AMD64/EM64T?

My doubt is caused by the fact that, looking in the supported chips list, IA64 drivers seam to not support any 6 or 7 series cards just FX series (5xxx) and earlier.

Moreover I do not understand if AMD64/EM64T drivers (as named in the Nvidia download site) are AMD achitecture only or they are unified drivers for both AMD 64 and Intel EM64T.

But only if you are running 64bit Linux!

Thank you all.

So, if I use a 32 bit kernel like the default Slackware kernel, should I use the IA32 driver?
