    There are probably several ways to install the nVidia drivers under Mandriva, but it would be best to let someone that actually runs Mandriva answer that for you. Sometimes, installing the drivers directly from the nVidia website works best, but not always.

    Most sound devices use ALSA and those drivers are included within the kernel. Check your sound settings to make sure they are correct.

    You can manually edit the bootloader configuration files to include Windows, but Mandriva used to have a GUI tool that you could use for that purpose. Look for it in the Control Center.

    Here you go... check this thread for adding it manually:

    Of course, you'd need to change any devices and their locations to match your own setup.
