I posted in your other post about making sure you have this.

Yes you need this driver to take advantage of your video card.

Most likely you need the "LinuxIA32" version. That is for standard Intel 32-bit processors (and AMD clones). The *64 ones are for 64-bit processors, which are pretty rare. You would know if you had one and you would be bragging about it.
