You go to nvidia homepage and grab the latest drivers for Linux. It's also a howto on Nvidia site and lots and lots of threads in this forum regarding Nvidia drivers, TV-out for Nvidia drivers, etc. Give the search a try.

Good luck!

Have installed two of these exact cards
wrote a review but hasn't shown up yet in the HCL

they are good little cards
fairly decent performance
I'm running Mandrake 10.0

basically download nvidia drivers
and read their how-to
http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-7676.html
then follow Daleks how-to
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ticle&artid=30

DO NOT USE KWRITE TO EDIT THE FILES
if you aren't already - get familiar with vi or vim, joe or something
