Exclamation nVIDIA Riva128 Video Card

I have a computer running SuSE Linux 9.1 Pro and it has and old nVIDIA video card in it. Apperently there is no support for 3D Acceloration with this card. I tried downloading the driver with YaST Online Update but when I try it says it had an error and it stops installing. I've also tried downloading the driver off of the internet it says that there is no precompiled kernal found when you run it and it stops installing too.

Thanks in advance
