I can't tell you much but have you checked to see if the card is supported by your linux distro? If it isn't you are going to need drivers for it, check with the manufacturer. If you've already gone over all of that, I am not sure how egxactly to go about doing that. I'm new to linux my self so good luck!

Well I know from experience that only new Linux distros (mandrake 7.2 and red hat 7.0 and probably other really new ones) support geforce 2's. I tried installing mandrake 7.1 with my geforce 2 mx and had no luck.

Soo make sure you're disto supports geforce 2's or it will be all f-ed up.

P.S.= There IS a way to get them to work with older ones but it was beyond me, but you might be able to do it.
