please excuse the potentially obvious questions that i post on this forum as i am new to linux and still trying to figure it out.

i'm trying to download the correct nVidia drivers for my Geforce 4 Ti4200. when i go to the nVidia driver page (http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux.html), i am presented with the following drivers:

Linux IA32
Linux IA64
Linux AMD64

i'm trying to figure out, first off, what the difference between these drivers are, and secondly, which was i should download.

my revelant system specs are:
AMD anthlon
nVidia Geforce4 Ti4200

thanks ahead of time for the help and especially for taking time to answer my question.

Choose the IA32.

The 64 indicates 64 bit processors Like IA64 is for INTEL Itanium CPUs and AMD64 Opteron CPUs. IA32 is for all intel / AMD 32 bit CPU's which includes the AMD Athlon.
