Thank you.
But, you did a search for a 32bit/i386 and I have a X86_64 box.

Sorry must have overlooked that at the top. Besides using 3rd party graphics modules, is there a reason you don't want to try the nvidia binaries from www.nvidia.com for your graphics card? Or have they officially ended support for your graphics card? I found this on their website:

Linux x64 (AMD64/EM64T) Display Driver

Version: 100.14.19
Operating System: Linux x64 (AMD64/EM64T)
Release Date: September 18, 2007

Release Highlights

* Added support for new GPUs:
o Quadro FX 290
o Quadro FX 370
o Quadro FX 570
o Quadro FX 1700
