Default SuSE 7.1 and nVidia GeForce 2.

I could really do with some help here..

I am trying to install the nVidia drivers for a GeForce 2 onto the following system:

Kernel 2.4.0
XFree 4.0.2

the first problem I have is WHICH driver do I need to download? Looking at the nVidia downloads site, there are dozens. I have tried the SuSE7.3 driver but it returns an error stating that the Kernel is not matched. I have also tried the TAR and making the drivers, this too returns an error stating the Kernel doesnt match.

I can't even get to the point of changing the XF86Config file and seeing if it works.

Any help would be appreciated, I am quite new to Linux, Novice/Intermediate level, so please be gentle with me.

Please visit http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?IO=li..._ia32_1.0-4349 and download the installer. You'll need to edit your XF86Config file by hand, but there are examples for you in the README.
