Trying to find an 'OpenGL' 3D Graphics card for my Linux box, I ended up
purchasing (well really being given!) a:;
    STB Blackmagic 3D PCI 12MB
Which is a Voodoo-2 based 3Dfx add on card.

Now that I have found out the make and model of the card.. I find out that
the BETA 3Dfx Linux drivers are no more and I do not understand all that is
needed to install the correct drivers from the web site : : onto
my Mandrake 8.1 install.... Right now Mandrake's installer "HarDrake"
installed BANSHEE drivers, which from what I have read do not drive the card

Unless somebody here knows of a better driver for the Voodoo2 based 3D card
for Linux and 'OpenGL'.

Can anybody here para-phrase the instructions into a way that a Windows user
could understand?
