you will never do on Linux unless you have a Quadro-type card
for Geforce ones stick with Windows 7 or Vista

basically Geforce cards can do 3D with the nVidia driver only on DirectX applications on Windows, nVidia restricts it like this so that they can sell the Quadro cards for workstations with Windows/Linux OpenGL 3D rendering apps and such

in Windows one could bypass this with the new TriDef DDD driver (well until nVidia blocks it anyway)
