Savage 2000 opengl context error

i recently recieved beta for the game shadowbane, and i keep getting an error when i try to open the game reading “Software OpenGL Context” i dont know what this means, i know that my card supports openGL and i have directx 9.0, so i dont know what the problem is (but then again i dont know much)… i also cant find new drivers for the savage 2000 (neither can Ferlynx),if someone could help me out i would really appreciate it, thank you.
