Drivers for voodoo 3 3000

I'm using Mandrake 9.2 on Pentium 3 with voodoo 3 3000.
I wanted to know if there are special drivers for this card, or should I stay with the default mandrake drivers.

I "did" have the same card installed about a year ago with the default drivers on a mandrake box. They worked just fine. Is there a problem with yours?

No actually.

I just wanted to know if i should install special drivers, or if mandrake's drivers are OK, because as i understand it, they're supposed to fit all voodoo cards...
maybe installing a new driver will improve preformances.

Same problem

I changed from red hat 9 to mandrake 9.2 and I have problems with voodoo 3. Red hat presented no problem.

I verified the conf with XFdrake but apparently the card and monitor is properly installed and configured.

Do I have to download a new driver?
what modules should be loaded
Any ideas?
