Nvidia, the excellent and outstanding people they are, actually releases linux drivers. You build them as a module for your kernel. Don't know much beyond that, but you might look around the nvidia site, they'll probably have a HOWTO for the linux driver installation.


BTW, Pardon me if this is a stupid comment, but just so you know, not many games are supported under linux, unless you have one heck of a Wine environment set up.
