Problems finding Geforce go 6100 drivers


I have been looking all around for the best distro to use with my laptop. I have a Compaq Presario F500, with a nvidia geforce go 6100 in it. I can not find a single driver for it, Nvidia said to look on HP and HP just doesn't have a linux driver for it. Does anyone know if there is one out for my video card? If so where, and does it work well? Thanks.

Should be able to use the nvidia drivers for linux.

As far as best distro that is hard to answer. Everyone likes what they like. I myself have always been a Redhat fan since back in the earlier 90s. Current release is Fedora. Now Fedora does not include nvidia drivers. It would have to be installed after the installation is complete. Many post here on installing on Fedora. Now I think Ubuntu supports the nvidia out of the box. At anypoint all distros can use the nvidia driver some just may need to be installed after the installation.
