Unfortunately, the PC is an old one, not really worth spending a lot of cash on, and the GF2 apparently only runs with those 7186 drivers. I'm not sure if the '11' update offers much over the '6' version I have.

Actually GF2 runs on 96.43.16 as well - try updating to those.
Some time ago, I tested both Riva TnT 2 and GF2MX200, and wine worked
with them without problems. Furthermore RTCW is a OpenGL game so it
should run out of the box. try updating drivers and then try running
RTCW using clean wineprefix.
