Geforce2 MX 400 64Mb driver for RH9.0 ?

im runinig a P4 celeron 1,7Mhz with 128MB DDRAM ... and Geforce2 MX 400 64Mb
i think that the VideoCard is not 3dAcceleration enabled ... cause i have tried the game TUX in RH9.0 and its moving very very slow /*i mean very slow, its like a winXP on a P2 with only 32MbRam :>*/
