Is Mesa worth of installing?
Will it work with my hardware (Riva 128zx)?
And cant somebody give a direct link to file for download(I cant open ftp folder at their site :-[ ).

Mesa is only a free software implementation.
It won't use any 3d card.
So it's really needless for U

Huh?

Works great with my Matrox G450 ... 800 FPS with the "gears" demo, in hardware.

Linux + Mesa + DRI + decent 3D card = very fast OpenGL.

You meant :

The default GL lib is libGLWrapper, which in your case choosed to load the libGL from DRI.
In the case you have no DRI acceleration available, it would have loaded libMesaGL

"libGL from DRI" = "Mesa + DRI driver". So what I said was correct.

Check out xc/lib/GL in the XFree86 source.
