How do I enable 3D graphics in Fedora 13 on an Acer Aspire 5000?

Hello all,
I have an Acer Aspire 5000 running Fedora 13. I don't have 3D graphics for the good games. How do I enable them? I think it has SIS video, but I don't know for sure. It is an AMD Turion 64 bit 3400 processor.
Thanks

Just found video specs. The video is SiSM760GX integrated 3D graphics controller with 64MB shared RAM.

Open System -> Preferences -> Desktop Effects.

But I doubt that 3D effects are working with your card.

Nope. the 3D on the card is not enabled. Its the same error message I got on my desktop with an Invidia Geforce card before I installed the driver and kernel mod to make it work. I was really looking for the same sort of thing for SIS video.

Thanks for taking a crack at it though

The problem with SIS, as I understand it, is, they they don't provide proprietary drivers for Linux. They have been announcing them for several time bad never released anything.
