Not sure about SuSE 9, but on redhat 8 and 9, enabling 3d accel (to play
armagetron, tuxracer,etc. ) was a matter of making sure the dri and glx
modules were loaded in XF86Config.  I also had one machine require that
I drop down to 16bpp from 24.

I would suspect that commenting out

 Load "dri" 

line in your XF86Config in the Module Section would do the trick.
