Is this right?
 
system:
850mHz intel Celeron 256M
nVidia Geforce2MX400 (64meg)
Mandrake 9.0

I have this up and running, but I was wondering if the geforce card is "accelerating".
Whenever I try to run Tuxracer, the screen gets a frame rate of maybe 10 per min. it stops, waits 3 or 4 secs then jumps way ahead.
The rest of the games seem alright (the ones I have tried).
When I was installing mandrake the video card was listed as a gf2DDRgeneric, not MX400.
Do I need to install a new driver?
Is there a way to tell if the card is performing properly?
I have also read that X does this to games, is this my problem?
thank you
james

You're using the default XFree Drivers, they do not have OpenGL acceleration, and that is the reason that it is so slow.

Get the OpenGL drivers here and follow the instructions:
