Is there any other drivers I can use?
Yes, basically you can try with your original Windows XP Drivers or Other version released by Nvidia. This drivers I posted here is the most stable driver version I found so far. In some cases the original windows XP drivers provided by your PC manufacturer is better than this version. If you have problem after using this drivers like frequent shut down or unable to play games, just try with different version, it is recommended to look for version 81.XX and below (older).

How do I enable AERO?
Note that Geforce 2 is a legacy and XPDM drivers, there is no WDDM drivers for legacy Card. XPDM means the drivers unable to support AERO physically and just provide basic display like Windows XP. So to get AERO just download true transparency software (just google it) and you will get that glass look.
