	You need to make sure you've got the XFree configured
to load the dri and glx modules.  In Section "Modules" of XFree86Config-4,
make sure you have

	Load  "dri"
	Load  "glx"

Just in case, also make sure there is:

Section "DRI"
	Group "xf86dri"
	Mode 660

(and add yourself to group xf86dri.
You said DRI was running, so this may not be the problem.
I've been using 4.1 with my Voodoo3 for the past couple of weeks

Hope this helps,
