    I went to my Jaunty laptop and with the Synaptic Package Manager I 
put nvidia into search and came up with a complete set of NVIDIA Binary 
Xorg drivers, starting I think with nvidia-glx-71 which you can try and 
I think that will work fine with your old nvidia hardware. As I said 
before on this computer I have a nvidia hardware problem which is no 
longer a problem. There are a lot of drivers now :-)
