Hello Gordon

I also have that graphics card. The good news is that NVIDEA support Linux,
and the driver can be downloaded from their website, in the form of an
executable file that installs the driver and compiles a kernal module for
it, all in one, following which, you will have to make some minor changes to
the XFree86 configuration file. All the details are in the readme file
packaged with the driver. The driver download page is at:

The file you are looking for is:  NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run
