Those drivers are somewhere between the nVidia 2.00 release and the nVidia
2.03 release. There are numerous problems with them.

Install the latest drivers from nVidia.

I have links for all the Deluxe drivers on my site, most of them do not

Install these, if nothing else.

Oh, and throw your CD away, unless you get REALLY stuck (i.e., without
network drivers/connection)



Assuming your XP CD is pre service pack 2, you can also make a new XP Pro
installation CD with SP2 integrated. Speeds up the install if you're
already at SP2 the first time around. Go here for info: .
