Default Confirming 4363 drivers installed properly on RH9

I just installed RH9 AND nvidias 4363 ver drivers for my geforce 4 mx 420 card. I want to know of a way to confirm that 3d accelleration is activated. I know the drivers are installed and working because of the splash screen and the ability to run some low end 3d games now. Whereas I couldn't before the install. But performance seams to be hindered considerably over running it in windows. And just in general 3d accellerated games in RH9 seam to be not nearly what they should be. Also during my extensive searching and googling trying to find a way to test this, I came across a script that checked config files, modules, etc to test and make sure the drivers were insatlled properly. While it did confirm they were, as I thought, they also had said that the kernel module doesn't seam to be loaded correctly. During the insatller it did say it installed the modules so I'm confused. The script does say it's not 100% accurate but it does point the direction in which I was thinking.

Below is the actual error I recieve from the script and also a link to information and a download of it. Perhaps someone here or from NVIDIA can check it's validity for future reference.

All the files seem to exist. Now I'm going to see if your kernel
module is loaded correctly...
the NVdriver kernel module does not seem to be loaded. The 3D
drivers will not work without it...please compile it for your
kernel, set it up to insert the module on boot, then run
this script again.
Remember if you are having trouble compiling the module,
try adding -D_LOOSE_KERNEL_NAMES to the Makefile.

You will have to login tho to download it. Was quite annoying. Email was recieved slowly therefore pushing by my activation time. *sigh*

Thanks for taking the time to read through all this. Hope someone out there can help, I don't want to turn away from linux over this, seams like a great os. But I can't play games so there is nothing to cancel the stress of learning it.

the test script only works with old versions of the driver that uses NVdriver as the module. New versions like 4363 uses nvidia as the module.
