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 NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run, 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,
etc.

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
inpection...

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
