Whenever I try to run 3DMark 2001 with my 32mb DDR Radeon, I get a

"3DMark could not initialize your 3D accelerator.
Try to downgrade your display settings.

DirectX Error Message:
P_D3DVertexBufferManager: CreateVertexBuffer: D3DERR_OUTOFVIDEOMEMORY"

I've already tried downgrading the settings, but no go. I'm presuming that I've run out of video memory. What should I do? I'm currently using DirectX 8.0, a Radeon 32mb DDR at 2x AGP, Biostar M6TBA w/ 440BX, Petium III at 772 mhx (7.5*103), and 128mb generic RAM
