Question Best distro for 3DFX Gaming


Hi all.
I whas wondering what is the best distro for 3DFX gaming???
I have a XP 2000+, 3DFX Voodoo 5 5500 AGP and 512MB of ram.
I use Slackware and i get about 1600 FPS in glxgears, no mather what version of slack i use, i get the same.
I use slack because i love it and because it has 3DFX drivers support like Glide3X and other stuff in extra directory in slack ftp, check it out...
Some games run fine but for instance itīs impossible to run Enemy Territury, because itīs really sloooooow
Can any expirienced 3DFX gamer give me a good distro recomendation?
I really like one distro that have support for 3dfx.
Thanks.

Sorry. I retired my voodoo 3 quite a while back and went nvidia across the board for conformity in the PC's...

I also don't have ET, only RTCW, which runs well on this box even though I get half the FPS in glgears that you get. Is ET a lot tougher to run than something like RTCW? I have a p3 700 with nvidia gf4mx440 type card.

I only ran things like unreal back when I had the voodoo...
