I'm probably not answering the question you are asking ("...3d
functions...) but here are my two cents.
I have a VooDoo 3 3000 installed in the machine I'm writing this to you
on. It's installed in a Tyan Tiger dual Athlon motherboard running
XFree86 4 and Gnome 2.6. When the machine boots, I get 1 long and 3
short beeps (with a red screen) before POST starts. This does not
appear to prevent the card from working for me.
For XFree86 mine runs at 1400x1050 at 24 bit depth.
I have no complaints.
I do not run graphics, other than Gnome 2.6 and its screen savers.
The graphics on the screen saver is good enough to make my wife jealous.
I don't know if this has helped or not.
