Geforce 6800 Ultra PCI-E

hey gang,

I've just recently installed MEPIS and loving this distro so far, it autodected and installed everything!! But sadly when I try a game in openGL I get very very bad frame rates and I'm not sure why..

First I assumed it was that nvidia drivers werent included in the OS, but checking up with the irc room for my distro users claimed that nvidia came with MEPIS.. so now I've no idea what to do..

first off I'm using the Geforce 6800 Ultra PCI-E card, amazing card under windows, but obviously I want a linux solution more.. Since I've never gone into graphics drivers before, I want to make sure that the nvidia drivers are being used already.. is there a command I can use to verify that the nvidia driver is indeed loaded and being used on my kernel?

my linux kernel is 2.6.10 btw..
