Video rolls when scrolling


I am havng trouble with the video rolling when scroling. Here are the system specs: Toshibe Tecra8000,PII 128mb Ram, Video chip is NeoMagic
magicmedia 256AV NM2200.

So far this is the only distro that works straight up on this laptop, but this anoying problem is all that stands between me and a HD install.

Thanks for the help.

Sorry, forgot the version:Puppy 4.0

Ok folks, it's been a while since I posted this question and there is still no answer from "out there" in digitland. I had an epiphany and took what seemed to me to be the obvious. I added more ram and what do you know, the problem went away!Case closed.
