ATI 3D Rage IIc (4MB memory)

I'm trying to set up a kiosk style flash presentation box for my school. It's an old emachine:

333MHz Cyrix MMX
64 MB Ram
ATI 3D Rage IIc

I'm not running KDE or GNOME, obviously.

I'm running almost entirely in FluxBox...

How do I setup the Xorg server for the video card. It's a small .swf file but even with minor animation it's REALLY choppy...

If anyone has this card working under Xorg (I'm using Slackware 10), PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE post your xorg.conf!!!

Thanks for the help!

Do you have room for more memory? That should help immensely. I've been working with some PIIs 266 mhz and increasing from 64 to 128 MB RAM was a big help.
