For the graphics chip you can use both the open source nv module and Nvidia's proprietary one. For installation instructions, you can view our Configuring a nVidia graphics chip guide. For 3D support, you will need the proprietary module. Some older versions of X may not have support for the Nvidia GeForce Go 7600, in this case you will need to use the proprietary module.
There were no problems getting it working. With older Linux distributions the graphics card and sound card may not be supported, so it is recommended a current distribution is used.
