Several things you should check :

1- What is your XFree version ?
(4.x and more allow 3D acceleration).

2- X serveur loads XF86config-4 when you have XFree >= 4.x and not XF86config (I had these dumb problem once... http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/wink.gif)

3- "load "glx"" has to be set in the "Module" section of XF86Config-4.

4- change your "nv" drivers to "nvidia" in XF86Config-4.

if it doesn't work, well... try to uninstall glx drivers AND kernel drivers for your card and install first the kernel and then GLX.
(NVidia's RPMs work fine with Mandrake 8.2).

I hope it'll help...
