Question 3D hardware accelleration

I have a Dell Inspiron 8100 laptop, which uses the NVIDIA GeForce 2 Go
chip, and I've installed Gentoo Linux 1.4.

More to the point, i've installed the latest NVIDIA drivers 1.0.4496
(using NVIDIA's installer, since i'm
not using gentoo's default kernel, and not the nvidia-glx-package).

However, according to NVIDIA's readme (Appendix C), all necessary files
are in place, linking to the 1.0.4496-versions of the library files,

Currently, I'm only testing the 3D graphics using openGL-enabled
screensavers in xscreensaver, but these are painstakingly slow at
fullscreen size, with just a few (2-3) fps, measured by visual

Does anyone know what I can do to really test if 3D accelleration works
(and if it does not, how to fix it?)

I've attached my XF86Config and XFree86.0.log files
