    So, I'm currently attempting to flash my AGP Nvidia Geforce FX 5200 128MB to be used in my PowerMac G5. I'm running NVFlash. I type "nvflash -4 -5 -6 fx64bit.rom" and it says "error: unsupported code type: 0x01. FCode support depreciated"
    Another command people say to try is start with "NVflash -e" and that command doesn't do anything for me.
    At first it kept telling me GPU Mismatch.

    I'm on an old Compaq Presario P4 machine with Windows 2000

    I've gotten that exact code flashing a card for my G5. Use an older version of NVflash

    another thing I want to point out is you mentioned your running windows 2000 for the flash to work you have you have to be booted into DOS (say from a boot floppy)
