With the default FC2 4k stack kernel, you cannot get 3D acceleration from
your NVidia card (3D driver won't work). However you do get 2D acceleration.
So unless you want to play 3D games, that is fine.

If you want the 3D acceleration of your NVidia card to work, you'll have to
upgrade your kernel to an 8k stack version, which is easiest to do by
installing a kernel from
http://www.linuxant.com/driverloader/wlan/full/downloads-fc2-kernel-i686.php
. Then install the NVidia driver.

HTH.
