      Download and install everything in the Files section of this site. That is you should start with 4.2.0 -> 4.2.0.1 -> 4.2.1.1.

      >like whats the difference between xfree86 and xdarwin?
      XDarwin is the X server provided as part of XFree86. XFree86 is a lot more than just XDarwin.

      >does it support 3dfx games?

      It only supports games written for the X window system.
