Default Which driver do I need?

I'm wondering which driver I need for my GeForce4 card. Here are the details:

Card: geforce4 mx440
Suse 8.2 with updated kernel (I think, how can I check this?)
Processor AMD.

Any idea?

Thanks,
Bart

cat /proc/version

uname -a

will display both your kernel version, and your hardware processor type, which as said is most likely IA32 (you'll see i386 or i686 in there), unless you very recently paid a boat load of cash for a 64bit proc.. I think you'd remember doing that.

Provided you DO have an IA32 compatible AMD proc, which is most of them, you want this:
