Aopen Geforce2 Ti 64M ..please direct!

I have an Aopen Geforce 2 Ti 64Mb and am having some trouble getting 3d to work on suse8.0.
First: will the basic nvidia kernel and glx drivers work on this. On Aopen's web site they have a driver file for linux dated 2000 which is in zip format or something? no good.
Below is my 3ddiag.

Verifying 3D configuration based on XFree86 4 for 3D board
"nVidia Coorporation NV15 DDR (Geforce2 GTS) (10de@0151)":

Tests for package "NVIDIA_GLX":
package ... done.
Tests for package "NVIDIA_kernel":
package ... done.
Test for correct XFree86 version ... done.

Tests for XFree86 configuration:
Config File /etc/X11/XF86Config ... done.
Driver ... done.
Color Depth ... done.
Extensions ... done.
Options ... done.

Aopen Gforce2 no problem

works great. i can use all the latest nvidia drivers.
I was just confused as to what aopen and nvidia are. i guess nvidia makes the standards and software and different companies produce the hardware like aopen to support them.

Not exactly. Nvidia produces chips (and drivers for them) and other companiec include the chips in their graphic cards/mobos.
