Unhappy S3 Savage Pro DDR graphics problem on install!!!

I'm having a small (large) problem when installing mandy 9.1 through Connectix Virtual PC on my win xp laptop. Every time i get to setting up my graphics adapter it causes me big headaches!!!!!

Trying all the S3 drivers with xfree 4.* it gives a corrupted screen but with xfree 3.* my virtual pc crashes out on testing or gives a fatal error message.

I'm sure other people have had this type of problem with S3 cards and would love to know the solution

Please Please Please will someone help this poor stupid linux newbie out.

Can I pick my nearest driver then carry on through the install and update the driver with some others I've found on the internet, and if so how the hell do I do that????
