Quick question (concerns drivers)


I want to download the drivers for my motherboard (off nVidia's site) and I'm not sure which one of these to download, mainly because I'm running an AMD 64, but I'm in 32-bit mode.

So is it Linux IA32 Drivers, or Linux AMD64/EM64T Drivers?

specs:
MOBO: Abit AN8 nForce 4
CPU: AMD 64 3700+
Linux: SuSE 9.3 Pro in 32-bit mode

64. 64 bit maintains compatibilty with 32 bit, that is why you are able to run 32 bit OS'es and app's on a 64 bit. So you would need the 64 bit drivers, since it is a 64 motherboard and processor
