if your talking about a voodoo video card you can try the steps below:

First remove all traces of glide and mesa.

Get the latest Device3Dfx driver from the cvs at and install those. Requered if you
run kernel 2.4.x.

Get the Glide V3 source rpm . Rebuild and
install those, both the libraries the devel stuff.

Then get Mesa 3.4 from You will need
both MesaDemos and MesaLib. Compile it using

# ./configure --without-svga --without-ggi --with-glide=/usr \
--prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc

And do

# make; make install.

Now test it a lot, to make sure at actually works (testGlide3x,
quake etc..). for your oringinal question, what is a 16/256 usb memory stick, are you talking about a compact flash or something?

You can use export MESA_FX_INFO=1 to get some usefull

Install the WickedGL drivers (miniGL from Wicked3D) and they
will give good performance 30-70 fps at 640x480.

For you memstick, try this:

mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/memstick

if that works you can add this entry to your /etc/fstab file:

/dev/sda1 /mnt/memstick vfat noauto,user 0 0

Then, all you'll need to do to mount your memstick is: mount /mnt/memstick
