Nvtv doesn't find geforce fx card

Hi, my nVidia Geforce fx 5200 128 mb isn't found when i try to start nvtv. It says: no supported video card found. Do anyone know if this card is supported by Mandrake Linux 9.2? (The card manufacturer (Sparkle) states it is compatible with all linux systems.) If so, what do I do?

this may be a stupid question, but did you install the nvidia drivers? and if so, post what you have added in your XF86Config for your card..

Yes, I have installed the driver. In the XFconfig file it says:

Section "Device"
Identifier "device1"
VendorName "NVidia"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce FX (generic)"
Option "power_saver"
