Well, I guess it's EOL for this old computer. VL 5.9 was really about all I could get to run on it except for a very old MS Windows on a different drive.
I tried xorg.conf from VL 5.9 (which I have now re-loaded an will use on into the sunset) and the one from Knoppix and the result was the same I always get using the glint driver.
Thanks for the help. Guess it's time for some new hardware.
