Hi, I have two questions, Firstly how do I know which nvidia driver to get and where do I get it and how do u install drivers?

Second question, I have got my network up and going finally, I used Samba 2.2.6 and LinNeighbourhood. On a Mandrake 9.0.
BUT each time I reboot I have to remount the drive on the XP computer through Lin... When I mount them it comes up with this message:
"params.c.Parameter() - Ignoring badly formed line in configuration file "passwd"all"authentication "tokens" updated succesfully"
It will successfully mount then then as I just click "ok"
I imagine this is a config file problem, I have not touched this file as Unsure how to modify it etc.
Apart from that it all works fine though from Xp I only have access to the Public dir (default setting again I think). Which I can change once I understand this a little more.

For your first problem, you'll probably want to tell everyone what kind of card it is and most likely you can get the actual drivers from nvidia's site, which I'm sure they include installation instructions as well. Take a look there first, run into a problem, then ask.

For Samba, if you want something to mount automatically in Linux you need to add it to your /etc/fstab file.
