Nvidia Geforce 4 Graphics card help

i am a new user to linux.i have a nvidia geforce 4 graphics card(pci card). i have installed Fedora Core 2 server. everything works fine on my ssytem except the games. i used glxgears to check the frame rate and it gives below 200.

799 frames in 5.0 seconds = 159.800 FPS
720 frames in 5.0 seconds = 144.000 FPS
840 frames in 5.0 seconds = 168.000 FPS
840 frames in 5.0 seconds = 168.000 FPS
960 frames in 5.0 seconds = 192.000 FPS
720 frames in 5.0 seconds = 144.000 FPS

please can anyone help me where to find the appropriate drivers for my graphics card and installation procedure.

greatly appreciate your help.
