Question nforce2 and non-NVIDIA video cards


I've been trying to solve this problem for a quite long time, but still, I got no solution.

I installed Mandrake 9.2, just to see how it works. On my personal machine (Athlon XP with GF2MX-200, KT400) everything went just fine and there are no problems with hardware 3D acceleration. Great!

Problems started when I tried to set up a machine on NForce2 with an ATI card (Radeon 9200).
What i did:
- installed NForce2 drivers. I did not patch the kernel, because I use 2.4.22-21mdk and I realised that this patch is already applied.
- installed fresh fglrx drivers from ATI site (rpm package, installed with --force), ran fglrxconfig, set all up.
Everything seems to be OK, card works in X, but after typing fglrxinfo I still see:

display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project:
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.3 Mesa 4.0.4

Quite weird, according to the generated XF86Config-4:
BusID "PCI:2:0:0" # vendor=1002, device=5961
Screen 0

Of course 3D acceleration doesn't work, no fancy Tuxracer sliding :(
What I did wrong? Is it a bug in NVidia NForce patch, ATI linux driver, both, or maybe something I missed?

Thanks in advance.
