ok, I have done some more work... First Slackware seems to be the easiest 
linux to install on there (I copy all files to a DOS partition then use boot 
disks) but now on with my question =)

Distro of Linux = Slackware 8.0
XFree86 Version = 4.1.0 (cames with Slak 8)
Video Card      = Trident Cyber 9385 w/ 1Mb VRam(EDO)

Section "Monitor"
Identifier  "Monitor0" #for easy identity =)
HorizSync   31.5-48.5
VertRefresh 55-90
Option      "DPMS"

Section "Device"
Identifier  "Card0"
Driver      "trident"
VideoRam    1024
#Chipset    "tgui9960" #-> It autodetects this anyhow
BusID       "PCI:0:3:0"

Section "Screen"
Identifier   "Screen0"
Device       "Card0"
Monitor      "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 16
SubSection "Display"
   Depth 16
   Modes "800x600"
End SubSection
End Section
Ok, With this part in my XF86Config my Screen is
2/3rds major garbled(white and gray mess) and
1/3rd barely garbled (usually lines of colors (Vertical))

Anyidea at all on how to fix this? (XFree86 -configure displays nearly the 
same except it lests all depths with no modes)

I am not gonna do anything major until i get an answer (last time i newked 
it and paid big time trying to get it installed again =(
