I also have an Geforce 4. Its a Geforce 4 MX 420, a very old model. But its still working and I'm happy with it. There's only one bug working with Beryl. Nvidia told me that they are on the way for a solution. Why I'm responsing is to inform you that it is possible, even with an old Geforce 4 to get the new kernel. All you have to do is to install the Nvidia Legacy Driver. They are still supported and updated, just not as frequently as the normal driver. You can get the legacy driver here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_display_ia32_1.0-9639.html Good luck with them!
