I think you have to download the display card(GeForce in your case) drivers and install them to enable you to play games using hardware acceleration.

Yes... you must also be experiencing problems with your screensavers and such... all you need to do is download the nVidia drivers and install them.

The default driver coming with Redhat doesn't support 3D. Since the tux racer is a 3D game, you need to download and install the 3D drivers. It's very easy to install. Go to www.nvidia.com
