UNinstalling proprietry mandriva nVidia drivers and installing new nVidia drivers
 
I have just installed mandriva 2007, great OS, i've been trying to get the 3D desktop effects to work, i have installed the requiered packages and it say's my system can't support them. I'm running a GeForce FX 5200 with 512mb of VRAM on an ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe mobo.

like i said i would like to uninstall the current nVidia drivers and i would like to install the specific nVidia drivers

any suggestions would be welcome
