Question Unreal Tournament 2003 GLX errors

Ok here is the situation I am running Mandrake 9.1 on a machine with the following specs...

AMD XP 1700+
Asus 266 Mobo
Geforce 3
Soundblaster Live! Platinum

Now the problem that I experience comes just after I install and attempt to run ut2003 (This is the demo version mind you). I get the UT splash screen and then nothing, so upon running the fine in the Terminal I get the error "Couldn't load proper GLX version" or something to that effect. I downloaded the latest drivers for my Kernel (at least I think for me kernel) and install them to no avail. I am not stuck with an X server error whenever I start my linux distro, and no working copy of UT2K3. I saw in another post of a similar nature that said to edit my /etc/X11/XF86config and add the line:

Load "glx"

under the "Modules" section, and also to change in the "Driver" Section:

Driver "nvidia"

Does such a fix apply to me? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

if you did not do the editing of the XF86Config file you did not install the driver yet.

the nvidia driver is loaded by X

you need to see if your using XF86Config or XF86Config-4

there are two files to download

the GLX and the kernel driver
