Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Ah it seems that lspci it is installed to /usr/bin/lspci on Mandrake systems. Try that instead:
If that doesn't work, try just 'lspci' as root. If that fails, then you need to download and install the pciutils package. That command gives useful info about your hardware, so it would be nice to see the output of it.
Anyway I can see that the modules i810 and i830 are not listed in lsmod, so try doing this an d see if you get any errors (you need to be root):
# modprobe i810
# modprobe i830
From your XFree86.0.log I can see that there are a few warnings but no errors. There are quite a lot of warnings related to I810, but no mention of I830. Some of the warnings are the same as the ones I get when it is working fine. But some of them I have not seen before, perhaps a Google search could explain it. Anyway try the modprobes first, and post the output of them, and also see if you can get lpsci installed.
It looks fine! No errors during the modprobe... have you tried modprobing then restarting the X server? If that doesn't work then I'm stumped... perhaps there is more info in the XFree86.0.log file that would be interesting to see.
Yeah, everything is working great other than the slowness to the actual FPS. When the direct rendering is on, it shows a framerate of about 200 - 400 frames verying on what I am doing. Otherthan that it is working great. Thanks for the help muzzy....
