to overclock your card:

if you want a windows style control pannel:

run it with the --extract-only option, the binary you want is in usr/bin/
copy nvidia-settings to /usr/bin

or look at the readme and do it manually

in your case:

__GL_FSAA_MODE GeForce3, Quadro DCC, GeForce4 Ti, GeForce4 4200 Go,
and Quadro4 700,750,780,900,980 XGL
0 FSAA disabled
1 2x Bilinear Multisampling
2 2x Quincunx Multisampling
3 FSAA disabled
4 4x Bilinear Multisampling
5 4x Gaussian Multisampling
6 2x Bilinear Multisampling by 4x Supersampling
7 FSAA disabled

for example
"export __GL_FSAA_MODE=6"

__GL_DEFAULT_LOG_ANISO GeForce3/GeForce4 Ti/GeForce FX Description
0 No anisotropic filtering
1 Low anisotropic filtering
2 Medium anisotropic filtering
3 Maximum anisotropic filtering


Setting the environment variable __GL_SYNC_TO_VBLANK to a non-zero value
will force glXSwapBuffers to sync to your monitor's vertical refresh rate

as you can see its easiest to use the gui


make sure you also have agp enabled

"cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status"

Status: Enabled
AGP Rate: 8x
Fast Writes: Enabled
SBA: Enabled

not really nvidia related but it may be an idea to switch to alsa for sound if your card can do hardware mixing, rather than rely on oss/arts. would mdk 9 use alsa by default?

one thing I find strange from what you have said is that mdk would have installed gcc but not binutils heh
