make sure that you are actually using the driver. it's entirely possible
for you to have ended up still using mesa or something like that.

if you run glxinfo, you should get output that can show you where problems
server glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
server glx version string: 1.2
client glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
client glx version string: 1.2
OpenGL vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
OpenGL renderer string: GeForce4 Ti 4400/AGP/3DNOW!
OpenGL version string: 1.3.1 NVIDIA 31.23

if it fails to run, or says something different, specifically for the 
OpenGL vendor string, run 
/sbin/ldconfig -v |grep libGL
and make sure that you aren't using libGL.so.1.2, or libGL.so.1.3 
which is mesa.  if you are, find them, remove them or move them to 
somewhere else (or change the soname. don't just change the version extension)
and then reinstall nvidia's drivers.

anything above a gf1 will support S3TC.
