Will adding nvidia repository in suse 11.1 enable yast driver download?

I installed the 64 bit opensuse 11.1 on my box. It has the geforce 6200 card. If I add the nvidia repository to yast, will I get the correct driver installed? I am not sure if the geforce 6200 is now considered legacy, so I don't want the most recent driver installed.

It worked great. I picked the first link and it installed without a problem. After rebooting, saw the nvidia splash screen and ran a 3-d game. I do have an extra entry in the grub menu. The entry starts with 'trace- opensuse...'. This is the entry that now boots 11.1. Can the old entry be deleted from the menu.lst file?
