A odd problem

Well, I've got a rather odd problem here. Let me do my best to describe it up please forgive 
any mistakes it is rather late. 

Quake 2 on my machine has very bad lag when using opengl rendering, but only when using 
opengl rendering and only in multi-player games where I'm not the server. If I serve 
everything will be fine. If I play in single player everything will be fine. If I connect 
to any q2 server in open-gl mode I will see lag over 1000 _but_only_ in open-gl modes. If I 
switch to software mode my ping will drop dramatically eg 1000+ to 90. 

Heres the relevant sys info:

Pent 800 
Linux 2.4.20
Nvidia Geforce 4 mx 440 


Tried under both Debian and Slackware on the same machine they share no files though...

Thanks Chris
