Exactly! ... since one can buy a brand new (and _much_
faster than TNT2) nVIDIA card (geforce mx4000) which _is_
supported by nVIDIA's accelerated drivers, on AGP for less
than UKP20 (or PCI for less than 30), then why not just do
that to use xgl? Then sell the TNT2 on eBay (to a museum ;)

Or, one could just install an old enough version of
xorg/XFree86 that you can use an old enough version of
nVIDIA's accelerated driver. Or port the UtahGLX driver to
DRI!
