Like the headline says: the article's out to help you install NVidia drivers under Mandrake. There's fine basic information here, and we'll throw in one additional tip for free: some cards may want AGP support turned off in XF86Config-4. How to do this is in the docs.

In keeping with tradition at LittleWhiteDog, there will be plenty of pictures for you to see exactly how things are done step by step. I will discuss some of the problems I encountered while loading and configuring the drivers as well as what I did to overcome those obstacles. If you own an NVidia graphics card and want to use hardware driven OpenGL in Mandrake 8.0, start reading. "
