By the way, quake3 runs alright on my linux box with a tnt using the new drivers
for the tnt, Chad. ;-)

Another option is to use WINE to run various games. People have had luck with
all sorts of software, not just games with wine. In essence, wine is
rewriting the windows .dll files, and giving linux a way to deal with them.

i hate to sound like a clueless first timer,
but if it walks like a duck.... well, anyways:
I'm having severe trouble seting up Mandrake6.0
to work with my 3dfx Voodoo3 3000. The graphics
setup doesn't have the card in it, and the
instructions on the 3dfx site:
seem a little advanced (oh gawd- did that sound
bad or what; this is humiliating, i know dos,
windows, and macs like the back of my hand, but
linux is turning out to be a bit of a challenge)
for the mere likes of me. They have instructions
that i could probably trudge through, but they don't
have a directory that you are supposed to put the
drivers in, etc etc, and also it says that some of
them are only distributed as source (!) and that i
have to compile them (again, a little off of my
linux skill level). If anyone could possibly help
me out in any way, it would be greatly appreciated.
I am in the bash shell at this point, can get into
the KDE interface, but only at a 300x200 (cant remember
specifically the size) virtual desktop, resolution
step controls don't work.
Thanks in advance
