SubjectRe: Problems with an older card on XFree86
Linux-kernel is the wrong place to post that sort of question.  This is a 
kernel development list, not a linux help list. I will say, however, that
slackware 8.0 is a totally innapropriate distribution for someone with your
level of linux knowledge. Try RedHat or Mandrake instead.
