Default Driver Settings Please Help!!!

I have some questions about the nVidia Forceware drivers that I can't seem
to find the answer to. These questions relate to the performance and quality
settings tab and are as follows

1) The Image Settings slider has High Performance - Performance - Quality.
What exactly is meant by these settings? What does setting any of these
actually do?

2) Anisotropic filtering - if this is set to say 2x it will override an
application's default but if an application never had an anisotropic setting
in the first place will the drivers attempt to filter anyway at 2x.

3) Same question as 2) but Antialiasing setting in driver

4) What relation does Bilinear Filtering and Trilinear Filtering have to
Anisotropic filtering? In Quake 3 for example these are the two options and
there is no Anisotropic filtering option but benchmarks often refer to
running Quake 2 with Anisotropic filtering enabled. Am I missing something
here as this seems to be unexplained.

5) Last question if I have an nVidia card that doesn't support say 8x
Anisotropic filtering but set this on the driver what will happen?

Thanks in advance for any help on this subject.
