You downloaded the nvidia driver and installed it, right?
Just do as the instructions say: In /etc/X11/XF86Config
comment out the line "load dri" and then replace "driver "nv"" with "driver "nvidia"", and you´ve got yourself 3d-acceleration.
There´s plenty of threads concerning this topic so I´m not going to dwell on it further.
As for Quake3, you need to download the linux version of the latest point release. 1.32 is the current on, I think.
Installation is simple, just execute the file. Then you need to copy the q3-data files for example from an existing windows-installation, if you have one.
Mandrake uses XF86Config-4 but it's the same file. If X doesn't find XF86Config, it will use XF86Config-4, or maybe it's the other way around, doesn't really matter. You only want one of them at a time.
You could try idsoftware's website, there's an ftp-link somewhere in there. Also 3dDownloads are linux friendly.
I'm having trouble installing the NVIDIA drivers. It says that it needs the source to my kernel, which I don't know how to obtain. I can't seem to find the source for Topologi-Linux, a Slackware based distribution.
