    I find this tutorial on the subject is very good: http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/andrewbarber/nvidia.htm

    It guids you through what you have to edit when you install the driver.

    Since you have a P4 - which I don't think any of which are 64 bit processors, you have the right one which is for 32 bit processors.

    Yes, I was unaware of this as well until recently. The Pentium 4 521 processor is an EM64T (64-bit) processor. More info on my last update here:
