MPlayer problem... works as root but not as users

This may be permission issue on Slackware machine. I just compiled
MPlayer-1.0pre7. I have ATI Xpert98 (Rage XL), so I'm supposed to do
mplayer -vo xvidix dvd://1
It works as root. It correctly identifies my card as Mach64/Rage3D.
But, as ordinary user, I get
[mach64] Error occurred during pci scan: Operation not permitted
What permission do I change, so that it can scan the PCI bus as
ordinary user? I even symlinked /usr/local/bin/lspci to /sbin/lspci,
and still the same error.
