Default Driver issue with Mandrake 9.2

I have just installed my First Ever Linux system at home that i actually intend to use (I did have RH 8 but i found the lack of media Support and being unable to access my Windows partion annoying :P)

I have just been looking on the Driver Pages and i am getting Confused as to:[list=1][*]What driver to install[*]How to install it[/list=1]

Thx for any help

*edit - I have a 128 megDDR GeForce 4 MX 440 with TV out
