Unhappy 8800 GTX with no 3d in SUSE

First of all, I'm new to Linux and I have just managed to install it.

Is 8800GTX still unable to run under Linux as effective as under Windows? Or it's just my Linux sucks and I have to somehow reconfigure something in my system to get 3d effects up and running?

I have SUSE 10.2 on my desktop and I've installed the 9755-x86 driver for my 8800GTX. The problem is that no matter what I do I can't turn the 3D acceleration on. Well pity I can't enjoy XGL or Beryl...

But even my screen resolution seems weird! The letters are somewhat poorly displayed. Well I don't know much about Linux Desktop but I know that it shouldn't be like that.

I did both the easy way (thru YaST2 via NV YUM) and the hard way (compiling a driver from the .run file from NV). I have the nvidia X Server settings running, but SaX2 still shows nothing right about my video card.

Anyone know the solution to this please? I'm exhausted on this system and I may consider switch to ubuntu~
