I´ll use a GA-586AP Board with a 100MHz Pentium. I believe that I can use a 3D PCI-Graphiccard only in PCI 2.1, is that true? How can I explore if the Mainboard supports PCI 2.1?

Your PCI 3d card  should be fine which ever slot it is in.

Shareware version is very nice. Has a mainboard diagnostic that will tell you what version PCI your mainboard supports.
I checked the gigabyte mainboard site, but they don't mention your board in particular, or what version of pci compliance is used on any board.

dudleyf: ok, i´ll try this! but is it really true that i need PCI 2.1 to get 3d performance?

Not that I know of, I don't know where your info came from. I'd check the specs of the video card in question and if it doesn't say it needs 2.1 compliant pci, then I wouldn't worry about it.
If this comment and my other anwser don't satisfy, feel free to reject them, you'll get more comments if the anwser isn't locked.

All recent chipset are compatible with PCI 2.1
Old chipset compatible : Intel FX...

PCI 2.1 : electronic standart : frequence, voltage, bus wide  .....
Where is something about DMA.

DMA is use by 3D card.
