    For a start tell us what you've done and with what on what distro.

    And how do you know it doesn't work?

    ok, first of all, it doesnt work cuz i keep tryin go enable the 3d acceleration, but it keeps disabling, and all i did, was to TRY to install the driver, and i dont think i was ever successful.....

    Try installing the lastest driver from http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-5336.html.

    Chris' question regarding distro is important.... trying to apply this driver into a slackware 9 environment is painful... but on redhat it take only a few minutes.

    Installing the NVIDIA driver takes about 2-3 minutes, and I use Slackware 9.0... Can't say its hard, because the fancy curses program does about anything for you..

    When I installed the driver onto my Slackware system I was forced to extract the files and manually place them about the tree. Maybe I missed an option... no matter... I enjoyed pain.
