startx problems


I have installed peanut and have attempted to configure startx.
The desktop is 'jumbled' when it does come up and the mouse responds erratically and there is a rectangular gray patch at the top of the screen.
Using a serial 3 button mouse with a 25-pin adapter (only responds when entered as a mouse systems type)
Monitor is VGA (capable of true color and 1024x768)
System specs are Intel Triton 430fx chipset
Pentium Overdrive processor 200mhz

The only message I get that looks like an error (not sure) is:
Symbol xf86 Interpret EDID from module /usr/x11r6/lib/modules/libvbe.a is unresolved!

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks

Cool Disregard This Post

Please disregard this post as I have switched to Corel Linux with a previous version of XFree - Problem solved!

Thanks so much!

I appreciate the input - however I had to go with a distro which supported my old hardware and size was a concern (reason for using Peanut - old 2gig hard drive) and Corel made it ridiculously easy to install and run! (I did search for an iso of Peanut v8.4 -no luck...)
