These are the references to DRI in the log:

(II) LoadModule: "dri"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libdri.a
(II) Module dri: vendor="The XFree86 Project"
compiled for 4.3.0, module version = 1.0.0
ABI class: XFree86 Server Extension, version 0.2

also...

(II) Loading extension XFree86-DRI

The laptop is a "Dell Inspiron 4000". The info at the link I posted says I have the correct driver. However the site is being updated.

Yes - when you open a 3D game there shold be setting sto adjust the quality of the game - on an 8mb card you should tone everything down.

mossy, the dell link didn't work. But I've checked the other one, and googled based on info from them and still nothing, I think I might just be out of luck with my hardware.

well possibly - but it's also possible it is something else that i have no clue to look for - I'm not a guru by any means.
