Salix OS screen, packages

i have acer travelmate 212tx (800Mhz, 128MB RAM, trident cyberblade graphic card with 8MB of memory). I use Salix OS there (slackware 13.37). My problem is, that my screenīs resolution is 1024x768 but it works only with 800x600 with a lot of black around. My second problem are packages and drivers. I canīt find anywhere driver for D-Link dub-e100 usb nic, any driver for graphic card, sound card etc. And i have a trouble with packages - i donīt know, how to install them, because its impossible to use local folder as a source in integrated package manager (gslapt). Thanks anyway.
