nvidia drivers


Hello anyone know which drivers are for me at this page:

http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?IO=linux


Whats the difference between Linux IA64, Linux IA32 and Linux AMD64?

Which one can I use if my system is AMD Thunderbird, 32-bit chipset?

goto http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp and go through the START HERE COLUMN and continue through step 3 (dont click the link that says linux and BSD drivers that will take you to the page without the documentation) when you get to the page after completing the START HERE columns find the readme. txt file
it contains all the info you need to picking the correct driver , to instlalling that driver to edit you XFree86config file afterwards......

I strongly suggest you read this....

hope this helps

Peace

The README instructions provided by NVidia are very good, like deepsix said, you should definately take the time to read them. As for what version you'll need though, go for the IA32. IA64 is for 64-bit intel architecture and AMD64 is for the new 64-bit AMD chip.
