Trouble with NVIDIA under SuSE 9.0


I've just installed SuSE 9.0 on my new machine, and I need to install drivers for my graphics card. At present, resolution is low, and any complex display (such as a game) slows down the computer due to lack of acceleration.

YaST tells me to download drivers from NVIDIA.com. However, when I download download.nvidia.com
/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/1.0-5332/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-5332-pkg0.run and attempt to install it, the program tells me that I need x86, not x86_64. Where on earth can I get that?

I believe the full name of my graphics card is "VGA GEFORCE-FX5200 128DDR TV 8X"

Thanks in advance for your help.

the latest build is 5336

just do a search for the file name but take out the _64 bit

NVIDIA-Linux-x861.0-5336-pkg1.run

(whne I was using SuSE 9.0 it didn't like the blah-pkg1.run file and required it's own SUSE version of the Linux drivers)
