Question - how *do* you get that kind of frame rate? My machine is of similar 
specs (Athlon 1.1, GF2-MX), but the best I can get out of the glxgears demo 
is about 950 fps. That's running in 1152x864 at 16 bit. If I use 24-bit, it 
drops to about 450.

My setup is simple - a fresh LFS 3.0 build, XF86 4.1 installed as per the X11 
hint, and with the latest nvidia drivers installed. It's using hardware 
rendering, but nowhere near the speeds you're talking about.
