return to castle wolfenstain: too slow

i installed wolf on my linux using
the game runs, but it is too slow... like my video card was too out of date. i have ati expert 2000 32 mb with rage 128 chip. i used to play the game in windows with exactly the same hardware. it was okey.
so it is my first game linux... do i have to install some extra accelerators? or what?

have you installed actual ati drivers for your card? if not you should because the drivers that come bundled with distros are generic, small, and not very good, i dont know if ati has drivers on their website for linux but if they dont then there is another source for them somewhere so just google for them
