Yep, i got one of those too :-)
Mandriva did not recognize it, so did not FC4, but both where close enough,
and recognized it as Nvidia Generic, That worked, but no acceleration. Now
you need to dl the driver from the nvidia website,
Check your cpu type, they have 32 and 64 bit drivers.
This is the 32 bit driver.Read the page, dl the driver, run it as root, Make
sure you have kernel headers and kernel source installed properly in your
system, the driver will likely compile the module for your system on the spot
and install it. Follow the instructions in the README file to edit Xorg.conf
or Xf86config.conf depending on your system setup. (likely Xorg)
when done, reboot and you are done. Oh, you must do the install process with
no X running (init 3 will do the trick) do the install and edit the xorg.conf
than init 5) and there you go, warp 10.
