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.

Regards,
Eric

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.

You need to boot to runlevel 3 (console mode) (see this TIP ... except you will change:

id:5:initdefault:

to

id:3:initdefault:

(when all is done and the drivers are installed, use the above TIP to change back to runlevel 5 (GUI mode).

After you boot to console mode, follow the instructions HERE ... README
