There are some MesaGL drivers that work with 3dfx hardware. However I have no experience with them as I use NVidia cards.

>> For Linux or for X?

To tell you the truth, I''ve no idea of the difference. The distrobution is Deluxe Linux 6.0, its based on Mandrake.

X is the de-facto graphical user interface for Unices (that includes Linux), while Linux is "just" the operating system itself. X is just another program for Linux. If I were you I'd check out www.xfree86.org. Xfree86 is a free implementation of X that comes with basically every Linux distribution. Check out the site, they've got a list of supported video cards there (the drivers for X are also known as "servers"). I'm pretty sure you could get X up and running using the VGA or the SVGA server - it'll be slow though

Actually I have a Voodoo based card myself. Check out linux.3dfx.com. They have all the drivers you need to get the card working for your system.
