Err, try the only one there.

Oh, wait, you mean that earlier selection. You want the IA32 drivers -- IA32 is Intel's name for its instruction set that every processor since the 386 is compatible with. IA64 is Intel's new 64-bit instruction set, which is completely backwards-incompatible, but don't worry about it, because Itanium chips are still very expensive -- you very likely don't have one.

AMD64 is AMD's Opteron series chip. You definitely don't have one of those; they aren't even out yet.

And FreeBSD isn't Linux.

The driver version you get should be 1.0-4349. There's only one file now, too, the unified installer .run file.

EDIT: And your card doesn't matter -- as long as it's newer than a Riva 128, it will work with these drivers. Such are the benefits of a unified driver model.
