Unhappy Searching for Drivers for using nVidia GeForce FX5200 128Mo VGA on GenToo distrib.

I am using a Dell flat display on a GenToo distribution with a generic graphics drivers that only allows 640x480 or 800x600 resolutions.
The display is then of very poor quality.

I'm searching for specific or even generic drivers for using a graphics card nVidia GeForce FX5200 128Mo VGA on a GenToo distribution.

Thanks for any suggestion.

1 minute at the nvidia website would take you to the Linux drivers. I use the GeForce FX5200 with 128Mb RAM as well (although I use a slightly older version of the driver):

Hope that helps.
