Angry S3 Trio 32/64+TNT2 Aladdin+X=YARG!!!

Alrighty. I'm running RedHat 8 standard desktop install but after install I went ahead and installed KDE. Running Dual Boot with WinXP Pro. My MoBo is a PC Chips something or other with an onboard TNT2 Aladdin, so it has that lovely little option in the BIOS to set the onboard video or the PCI Video as the default card. I installed an S3 Trio ??? into the computer a while back before setting up RedHat to have a dual monitor set up in XP. Xp only detects both cards though, if I have the S3 set as Default in my CMOS. FYI: WinXP Detects the S3 as an S3 Trio 32/64 Linux detects it as a Trio 64 (generic) and the display gets really screwed up so I have to set the OnBoard TNT2 to default. Yesterday, I had a little hiccup when I installed KDE and left GNOME on there but that was solved rapidly. Before I left the workstation, thogh, I ran WinXP so I had to set the default monitor back to the S3. When I got into work today I booted up but forgot to change the default card. Linux Booted and right where It should go into the KDE Login screen It started flickering the text login prompt. I rebooted the comp and changed the default back to the TNT2. Linux booted then detected the TNT2 but kept on flickering at the text login. I left it for a few minutes to ask a coleague about it and when I got back It had stopped flickering but had a message up it read "INIT: ID "x" respawning too rapidly. Sever disabled for 5 minutes" I tried to run X from the command prompt but got a "No Screens" error... HELP!
