Question 'TORCS' (the game) running at 2 fps only!


I just bought an Acer Travelmate. I got SuSE with it but decided to hang on to Fedora Core 3. Now the m/b is an 855 but during an install, it was recognised as an 852 and put in the corresponding graphics driver. I changed the setting, but im not sure if Core 3 has the driver meant specefically for the 855 (atleast it still shows the 852 driver being used, even though it shows 855 as the m/b). Anyway, other stuff works just fine, but this game called 'TORCS' (The Open source Race Car Simulator) runs at about 2 fps. What should i do". Some sites claim that the 855 and the 852 share the same drivers. Is this true?
Thanks,
Arjun
