Default Geforce 3 not supported

Hi all

I have tried installing the 97xx series driver for my nvidia geforce 3. But it says that i should use "legacy" 96xx series.

96xx works like a charm, but when i look at supported cards Geforce3 is supported and the download application suggests that i use 97xx.

So the question is this: do i need to use the legacy driver or are 97xx gonna support my geforce 3.

Thanks
./Jesper

The 1.0-9755 README has a table of which GPUs are supported by which driver. Your GeForce3 is supported by the 1.0-96xx series of legacy drivers.

Hi

Thats just what i wanted to know.
Will there be any updates to the 96xx series or do i need to purchase a new card to get the latest drivers?

The legacy branches will continue to be updated with bug fixes, but no new features will be implemented.
