Xorg Problems with Slackware 10.1 and Dell Dimension 3000
Hi, I am new to linux and slackware, currently I am trying to use and make a good friendship with Slackware to remplace windows, now I am having some problems starting the X Server on my Dell Dimension 3000.
Slackware installed fine and worked, I have tried a LIVE CD from Ubuntu and the GNOME started with the CD...
However, I get the following errors 'startx' :
(EE) I810(0): No VIDEO BIOS modes for chosen depth.
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.
Fatal server errors:
no screens found.
XI0: fatail I0 error 104 (connection reset b peer) on X server ":0.0" after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
My computer specs are the following (from dell.com)

I use (for windows XP) the following video driver downloaded from Dell.
Intel Springdale G Integrated Video
On X -configure (the config generator) says the card is: 82865G Integrated Graphics Device.
I have raised the BIOS memory from 1MB to 8MB (max) that someone said it worked for him, it hasn't worked for me...
How could I get my X linux dell pc working?
