The first thing to do is to find out exactly what that card is.  Why do 
you think it's an S3 Trio 3D chip?  Why do you write "64?" ?  If you find 
out exactly what the chip is on the card then things will be easier.

Just saying "Slackware" doesn't provide very much information.  The 
particular release number of the distribution will convey more information 
to other Slackware users that may be able to help you.  Even more 
importantly for this list will be the version of XFree86 that you're 

Try the following to find out what the card is:

"/sbin/lspci -vv | grep "VGA compatible controller"

to find out what version of XFree86 you're running:
"X -version"
