Question Vid Help for Newbie Please! Oh PLease......

Ive just installed Monkey Linux/Mini Linux 2.0.30 on my Pmmx 200/32Mb and Im having a bit of a problem with the Video.
Everytime I run X-windows it crashes or my monitor goes into snooze mode. Ive noticed that while Linux is loading that I get a list of Warnings, like this

PCIBIOS_init : PCIBIOS revision 2.10 entry @ 0xfb120
Probing PCI Harware
Warning: Unknown PCI Device (1106:585)

Warning: Unknown PCI Device (1106:571)
Warning: Unknown PCI Device (11c1:44A)
Warning: Unknown PCI Device (3d3d:4)
Warning: Unknown PCI Device (3d3d:3)

My video card is an 8mb Permedia 32

Can you please help me???? I want to get into Linux in a big way
