Default error permission denied??

i installed the linux 4363 drivers and edited my x86config file.

all's good except.

when i try to play ANY opengl based game i get this message.

ERROR permission denied.

then i read the read me from my drivers nvidia.GLX

it says to lower my security settings.

i am new to mandrake i am using midnight commander to find the files.

so how to FIX this problem with MANDRAKE 9.1???

please dont say find the file that nvidia suggests to find cause its not listed where its supposed to be...

it said each distro is different...meaning different names

PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!
