Default Need help with my GeForce4 MX440

I am mostly using Windows XP, and I have recently installed Red Hat 7.2 on my PC, but no way to start XWindows (everything works fine with runlevel 3).
I understood the problem is that my NVidia Geforce4 MX440 is not supported by my OS.
Can you please tell me what I shall do: if I am not wrong I have to install a new driver, but which one? where can I download it?
Sorry for the maybe stupid question, but I am not expert with Linux....
Thanks

I had this same problem but at the time I was using a GeForce 2. The problem is that the version of XFree86 that is included with RedHat 7 is that it doesn't support Nvidia graphic cards. Go download the newest version at www.xfree86.org

This should fix your problem because 4.3 comes with a generic driver for Nvidia chipsets.
