Question 3D hardware support

Recently loaded SuSE 8.0 and it detected my Video card without any problem, ATI Magnum/Xpert 128 AGP card. When I configured it in YAST2, I checked the box for 3D support. Problem occurs when I try to run a 3D game, I get the following error, or warning message;

3D hardware support not available
No 3D graphics card available or 3D support not configured yet. However application uses respectively requires 3D hardware support.

Done a lot of looking in man pages and help docs. Even searched this forum and can't find anything. I'm am a week-old newbie so I'm probably missing something.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Kernel: 2.4.18
xserver: 4.02
Linux is using the Rage 128 VGA controller
