Find out - Its important - Mesa is a good but
software rendering is _damn_ _slow_
utah-glx.sourceforge.net do Accelerated drivers for OpenGL
for some cards. I believe they do a daily RPM from their CVS.
altho you may want to patch the kernel to support agp-gart
for best results...
If its an NVIDIA card -go to www.nvidia.com and hit the drivers
link and download your RPMS

Mesa doesnt require an X server config at all. For the Harddware accel openGL
youll need to add Load "glx" to Section module in /etc/X11/XF86Config.

download gcc-2.95.2-i386.rpm, binutils, glibc-devel and make RPMS
rpm -Uvh *rpm.
tar zxvf source.tar.gz
./configure && make && make install ;)
hey it DID begin with download an RPM.... :)
