Exclamation Debian Woody: Framrates help (please!)

System:

Debian Woody (2.4.18-bf2.4)
AMD Athlon 1800+XP
GeForce 4 MX460 (64MB)
256MB RAM

I've installed (after much fuss) the new 4349 series driver, but am having major framerate issues.

Previously (Red Hat 8) I was getting about 70-80fps when walking around and down to 30fps in a heavy firefight. Now I struggle to get 25fps when walking around! (Uh-oh...)

Any help? All my sym links seem fine, and I've got the nvidia module installed and running - so what's the big deal. Twin view is also working correctly (I'll have a go at disabling that, but I don't think it'll make much difference).

Thanks

Tim

Does 2.4.18-bf2.4 include support for MTRRs by default?
