Default 4191, SuSE 9.0, GLX issues (not loading)

First off, I'm a linux intermediate, computer specs:

AMD XP 2600+
1 GB PC2700
GeForce 4 Ti4200 4x 128
SuSE 9.0 Professional
2.4.21 kernel version

Ok, now to my issue...
At first I had used YaST to auto download and install the linux nVidia drivers, but after having performance issues with newer drivers and my card and having installed the drivers manually a few times before, i set off on my quest to revert my drivers back to 4191. RPM install gave some issues so i went tarball installation, everything worked fine during 'make install' however upon starting X server, the GLX extension is NOT loaded...i've manually edited every XF86Config (SaX2 for SuSE makes a bunch of replicas for some reason), and they all CLAIM they are loading "glx" and are using "nvidia" instead of "nv". I've even tried starting X manually pointing to one of the configs and still GLX doesn't load.

So for some reason GLX isn't loading, and i've reinstalled at least a million times :0P...

Install the 4620 driver HERE I assume you know how to switch init modes?. Onces it's compiled the driver do
Code:
sax2 -m 0=nvidia
, ignor sax2 saying no 3d, setup your display and type init 5 to load up X.

err...i'm looking to install earlier versions than 46xx

From my experience with the nvidia drivers in windows, 41.09 and 42.82 were the fastest drivers there were...so i'm looking at getting 4191 installed, it's the closest to the windows counterparts that gave me the best performance. everything after 43.xx SUCKS, major frame droppage for GeForce 4 cards! Major like 20-30 fps lower!

The 4620 driver is beta so take no notice of the driver number, get them closest to windows is hard because they have not been developed as much as Win. People have reported better if not just as good but thats more thanks to Linux, agpgart, nvagp and I must say it's getting close.
