Nvidia driver for nVidia G98 [GeForce 9300 GE] Video card

I am upgrading my machine to CentOS 6 (32-bit), it is presently running CentOS5.x release.

My question is will this driver work with the new CentOS 6 x86 Nvidia video card on my machine?

from machine
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: nVidia Corporation G98 [GeForce 9300 GE] [10de:06e0] (rev a1)

I am a bit confused over which one I would download to install. Any help would be great.

Try this Nvidia page. The automatic hardware detection feature should tell you which driver to download.

The scanning link did not work (something with my machine), however I was able to select the video card from the options and download.
