Especially since Richard sounds like he's willing to put up with all kinds
of this sort of abuse from this hardware vendor. They're not worried about
losing him as a customer, so they're not going to do anything about it.
You see, they know he's already bought their crap if he's looking for drivers.

Or, as Steve said, quit pounding your head against the wall, and go out and
buy some equivalent hardware that *is* supported by your other software 
(specifically the OS you use). Junk that nVidia crap on eBay to some
XP-me-no-thinky-me-clicky-clicky-all-day-long braindead user and at least
get some of your money back if nVidia won't give you a full refund.
