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.

You may have to download drivers for your voodoo3. Just one problem. 3DFX is long dead and decomposed, and the site 3dfx has listed on their site, Voodoofiles only has 1 old set of drivers for Red Hat 6.1 and there are no download locations for it. I had the same with my computer and had to download and install the nVidia drivers. Even though lspci shows it, it doesn't mean it works. Do some searching and you might be able to find what your looking for.
You may also think about purchasing an older nvidia graphics card. The fact that 3DFX cards are no longer worth much of anything means that 3rd party drivers are being released less and less. A nVidia GeforceFX 5200 /w 128MB RAM is only $80 for AGP and $100 for PCI. You can probably find a Geforce MX 4000 /w 64Mb for about $50.
I'm still learning what things say but looking at that driver list I'm compelled to say that there isn't a driver in there for your voodoo3. Like I said there are a few that i don't know about but I don't think those are it.
OK, 3dfx is no longer doing business, but for voodoo 3 or higher are still available drivers for Linux. l module for Voodoo3/Banshee which comes with the kernel source. There are also X drivers for it. I don´t have V3 card, but I know people who use the 3D acceleration of such boards under Linux. (Glide and DRI) Also from the chipset info I can guess you´re using Pentium II/Celeron CPU, right?
