After installing and then re-installing twice the new 5.30 drivers with a G200, I was not able to play Half Life, Midtown Madness, Rainbow Six, and I'm sure the list could go on. Got the blue screen, fatal error. Went back to 5.25 and the games are playable. I see other posts with similar problems. HOPE TO SEE A FIX TO THIS PROBLEM??!! Would love to use the 5.30!
I use a K6-2-450 on a FIC 503+.

My friend plays Unreal, reported no problem (actually, better performance) with new driver (w/G400)...
I have the same blue screen problem with Rainbow6. I revert it back to 5.25, but same problem exist. Then I shut off PD prior to game play, the game works fine. Bug in PD rather than the driver itself? Hmmm...

Seems to be a VIA Chipset thing. You are not alone...
