Try www.nvidia.com for the GeForce. Under Drivers you will find a Linux section with loads of downloads. I would personally use the .tar.gz files, but you may get the MDK ones to work.

If you search the site for GeForce 2 MX you will find someone who has written a good walk through.

the files you need to download will be tarballs, which win98 doesn't usually recognize anyway, so it should save them normally. from there, you would probably need a cd to copy the files to the linux box, if i remember correctly, they're too big for a floppy.

from there, untar the files in linux, and the README should have pretty good instructions.

if there isn't an rpm for your distro, then you're probably best off with the .tar.gz files - they can be installed in any distribution.
