But I'm not sure about that because I have the feeling that 3D support is
in fact not included in the standard etch reposititories (but I might be
wrong on this last asumption...)

No, you are right, but as far as I know, it is NOT included by default
in any Linux.  Nos Suse, not FC, not Ubuntu, not Debian, not any I have

Hummm...I'm not sure about this : in fact I just installed KUbuntu 6.06 on my laptop and found 'DRI enabled' (in Xorg.0.log) which should confirm (correct me if I'm wrong) that 3d is available.

Ubuntu ships Nvidia and ATI binary drivers (infact all of linux-restricted-modules-*) on the install cds, its installed by default.
