Graphics tuning?

Can anyone tell me why my graphics card is slower in Linux than Windows XP (its dual boot)?

When I play America's Army I in Windows I get around 25-30 fps. In Fedora Core2, its about 10fps.

I have a Pentium 4 2.53 ghz, 768 ram, ATI 9600SE. I know its not the best card, but why is it so much slower for Linux? Drivers for Linux not as good?

root@localhost X11]# fglrxinfo
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: RADEON 9600 Generic
OpenGL version string: 1.3 (X4.3.0-3.11.1)

[root@localhost X11]# fgl_glxgears
1074 frames in 5.0 seconds = 214.800 FPS
1664 frames in 5.0 seconds = 332.800 FPS
1892 frames in 5.0 seconds = 378.400 FPS
2253 frames in 5.0 seconds = 450.600 FPS
2265 frames in 5.0 seconds = 453.000 FPS
1839 frames in 5.0 seconds = 367.800 FPS
2343 frames in 5.0 seconds = 468.600 FPS
1850 frames in 5.0 seconds = 370.000 FPS
