Erm... GeForce... 2?

I'd suggest two things for turning on 3d effects...
Hope, and pray.

Probably best to leave fancy items turned off. You should be able to play a couple of the less intense 3d games though.

I did manage to get Suse 10.1 to run the 3D effects on my old GeForce 2 card but it was a bit flakey, bad enough I shut it off after fooling with it a few days. I found a GeForce 6200 card for a good price and have Fedora 6 and Mandriva 2007 running 3D very nicely now.
