Default Unified driver?

Under what circumstances would I need the unified driver? I recently bought a computer that had all onboard nvidia parts-- the graphics card, the sound card, and the network card-- and was wondering if I should go for this on my mandrake 9.1 system or if I should just find individual drivers for each.

I am new to Linux and still learning the ropes, so any help is greatly appreciated.

Here's the dilly
use the unified driver thing its not as unified in linux as it is in windows its just basically a package with all the drivers in it you can install them individually

its a pretty good driver

the only other option is OSS and you have to pay for that
if developers hate M$ then
why develop for there platform, we the coders determine the platform of choice, stop letting the corporations decide for you!

As far as I know, the sound on the nforce board is just a standard AC97 and is supported by all of the generic Intel8x0 drivers in all sound packages be it OSS/Free or Alsa.

If you're doing anything serious with audio, you should really try out alsa (http://www.alsa-project.org/). I'm pretty sure that the nforce audio is well supported.
