3dfx support

I downloaded libglide3.so from the resources of dri.sourceforge.net and 
put it in the /usr/lib folder. It does not work and my Linux system can 
load it. Here is what I get:

root:/home/thomas# ldconfig
ldconfig: /usr/lib/libglide3.so is not an ELF file - it has the wrong 
magic bytes at the start.

I can't compile it and I can't use binary... what should I do ?
