I run exactly this card at home.  I think this may be a mistaken error
message.  What kernel are you using?  The problem may actually be that:

A) your kernel has no DRM support for the Voodoo3; or
B) you're not running a recent enough kernel for the DRM/DRI handshaking

For B) to be satisfied you need to be running -- IIRC -- 2.4.0-test9 or
2.2.18pre15 or later.
