Default GLW_StartOpenGL() - could not load OpenGL subsystem

i keep getting GLW_StartOpenGL() - could not load OpenGL subsystem when i try to play wolfenstein. i know it has something to do with installing the graphics driver, but i don't know which one to install. i have a nvidia riva tnt2 modle 64/modle 64 pro video card and the dupposed riva driver dosen't work when i install it. could any one go to the nvidia website and find the appropriate driver and tell me which one it is, orr could any one provide me with a link to an alternative website with a driver that will help my situation?

your going to have to go for some older drivers. at least as far back as when nVIDIA called their drivers "detonator" instead of "forceware". i think 12.60 is the version i installed the other day on a pc with a TNT2 card
