    Is there not a "full screen" option in the menus for these games?

    It might be a resolution problem. What does the display section of your xorg.conf file say? Also, do you have 3D accelerated drivers installed?

    my 3d acceleration should run, but not. i810 is my video board with 32mb memory. PIII 1000 mhz is the computer, 128 mb ram. I've added "section "DRI""
