Fresh install of Slackware will not load X

The motherboard i am using is an ASUS CUW-AM (which isn't listed at I have a socket 370 with a converter on it and a celeron 1.1ghz taulitin, and 192mb of ram. I am using the intergrated graphics and a dell P780 monitor. I just burned the install disks so the a clean. I have tried different types of default color depths. At 8 bits i get a white screen. 16 i get green bars. 24 i get moving green bars. I got my xorg.conf using a flashdisk.

thank you for any help
