Getting DirectDraw to work

I've been trying to use Wine to play some DirectX games. One in
particular is a shareware game with available source code, ClonkPlanet (
http://www.clonk.de ). It was built with the DirectX 6 SDK. The front
end loads all right, but the engine croaks, saying that it couldn't
initialize DirctX. At the same time, I get the following error-messages
$ wine Planet.exe
Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
err:x11settings:X11DRV_ChangeDisplaySettingsExW No matching mode found!
This is on a Redhat 9 WS system with locally-compiled Wine 0.0.20040121.
/etc/X11/XF86Config was produced by some autoconfiguration utility, and
includes the following lines:
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "RIVA TNT2"
I read somewhere that the nVidia driver doesn't do DRI because it has some
other way to do graphics. Is there any otsome way to force Wine to do
software-only DirectX display?
