Well, I could always use a graphics card, my 4Mb Mach64 is really
getting me down ;-P

Yes, it should support both GLX and SDLGL.

Two answers:

Make sure that there is a:
Load "extmod"

in your
Section "Module"

section of your /etc/X11/XF86Config file.

2) try quake2 +set vid_ref sdlgl  (assuming you have SDL installed)

hope that helps, let me know if it doesn't
