No, when you're using the builtin drivers it still says Mesa even though 
it's accelerated:

prophet at ubuntu:~$ glxinfo | grep render
direct rendering: Yes
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Rage 128 20041026 AGP 4x

Tuxracer and Neverball are both playable. They're not playable with 
software rendering on my Athlon XP 3000+ desktop, let alone on this P3 
800 laptop.
