OK first off why would you want to roll back that far? I rolled back to 77.77 and thats as far as I went.

Is the card supported by those drivers?

The card isn't supported by the drivers you are trying to install. My card won't roll back to anything older than 83.40, so I can't use Rivatuner. I'm pretty sure 77.77 is the best (old) drivers to date for the 6600GT!
