Data Grafikdriver for xfree40

I have a Problem.

I installed freebsd 4.3 on my computer.
I have got a Geeforce 2 MX from Nvidia and on the nvidia homepage are only drivers for linux and somthing other strange.

Can I use this drivers?
I don't think so, the kernel is different between linux to unix, so what can I do?

Are there any updates available or do i have to start xfree40 and give in all the chipsets and ramdacs ...

so please tell me someone the best way to solve the problem.

Your two main (non-hacking) options are:

(1) Change video cards to one that is supported on your system.

(2) Change X services to a commerical X server that supports your card.

Most other options are hacking or driver development, which you might not have time or desire to do. My suggestion is (1) or (2).
