I'm having a couple of problems installing Slackware v 1.2 on my Pentium 100.

Problem:  I'm trying to install XF86.  Within the setup program, it lists a lot of video drivers and monitors.  The card is a VIDEO-57 Graphics and Motion Video Accelerator using the Trident 64-bit TGUI9680 Advanced GUI Accelerator.  Any suggestions on what settings I should use?

use XFree3.2A, the svga driver supports 9440,9660 and 9680 chips. On old versions, you have to use a specific server, but i don't remember where to find it and it was 16 colors only. Look at the file RELNOTES in XFree3.2A distribution (on sunsite or mirrors). Use also XF86Setup.
