Default NVidia/AMD64/Kernel 2.6

I have NVidia FX5200 on AMD64 system running Kernel 2.6.7-rc2. I
tried 1.0-5332 for AMD64 and that wouldn't compile - I understand
1.0-5332 won't compile with 2.6 kernel.

I have the impression you can run 32-bit binaries on AMD64, so I then
tried 1.0-5336 for IA32, which is supposed to work with 2.6, and that
wouldn't compile either. I get a message about a linker problem with
the combination of elf 32 and 64 bit objects.

Is there a solution to get NVidia/AMD64/Kernel 2.6 to work?

I think you need to use the patch from http://minion.de on the regular 5332 amd64 drivers. Get the 5332 diff and readme file under the 'x86-64' heading, it tells you everything in the readme.
