Linux Gamers' FAQ
Basically, the framebuffer console, with your happy pretty bootsplash, and small fonts and whatnot is a driver that uses your nVidia card. The X (x.org, xfree86, natx) nVidia driver is, the more obvious driver that provides you with working 3D, and some neat 2D stuff (twinview, and whatnot) also uses your card. If the two are used at once, they will both attempt to talk to your video card, and this is a conflict.
There's a framebuffer HOWTO at http://www.tahallah.demon.co.uk/ which should help. In addition, a very useful framebuffer site for developers is http://www.linux-fbdev.org/
The Official D2_3DFX FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
this time, no. nVidia's drivers do not support Glide, and therefore do not give you the ability to play D2_3DFX or any other Glide-only game. However, because nVidia recently purchased 3DFX and rights to all of its hardware, software and manufacturing facilities, we may be seeing an updated set of drivers fairly soon that will give us this Glide compatibility. Stay tuned. However: Keep in mind that D2_3DFX is such an old program that it may not run for you even if Glide support is added.

Linux Gamers' FAQ
X makes use of Memory Type Range Register (AKA "mtrr", check out /usr/src/linux/Documentation/mtrr.txt for more info). To see if you have mtrr enabled in the kernel, do: cat /proc/mtrr. If you don't have that file, you don't have mtrr. Re-compile your kernel with this option enabled. It's in "Processor Type and Feature" in the kernel config. You want this feature. There is a known issue with version 1-0.4191 of the nvidia drivers where 2D is just slow. It is not related to mtrr.
Linux Gamers' FAQ
This usually boils down to a question of stability. In the early days of the nvidia driver, nvagp was more stable, but sometimes slower. Also, some times nvagp didn't support a particular chipset, so it was either agpgart or nothing. Nowadays, it's commonly presumed that agpgart is a bit faster than nvagp, but nvagp is more stable. This is really something of a gamble, and depends on your hardware. Try agpgart first. If it works, great! If your box proves to be unstable with it, use nvagp.

Talk:FAQ - Xbox-Linux
Nvidia provides drivers for Linux (binary only). Are these drivers compatible with Xbox Linux? The Xbox is basically a Intel PC and Nvidia provides the graphics card. These drivers are for Intel X86 processors with Nvidia video cards running Linux. If this is compatible, it should solve the 3D acceleration issue with Xbox Linux. Unfortunately not.
Erowid Heroin Vault : FAQ
Many users find their first experience to be not all that fun. In my case I used the drug again to try and achieve the effects experienced by my friends, and had to go through several unpleasant experiences before I got what I wanted out of the drug. Nausea and vomiting will often continue for several hours during these first attempts. It may seem funny, but many users actually find the vomiting to be not all that bad, particularly when compared with being sick while on alcohol or amphetamines.

Another variant is the beep program found at ftp://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/kernel/patches/misc/modreq_beep.tgz The modutils package has an example program and kernel patch that supports calling an arbitrary external program to generate sounds when requested by the kernel. Version 2.0 and later of KDE allows playing a sound file for the console beep in KDE applications such as konsole.
