    If you like slackware's simplicity of design, you might try Arch Linux. Arch Compared To Other Distros - ArchWiki
    I find it very hard to believe this is a Slackware issue.

    To me it is actually quite obvious that it is a driver/hardware issue. I did some searching on various search engines before I posted here, and it seems others also have problems with Xpress 200 and X, however most of what I found was mere ramblings and not consistent and formalized enough to put up here as references.

    Yeah, I should have just used "UBUNTU", that would solve all my problems ... except, ummm, no.
    Not to mention that just the name "Ubuntu" makes me want to throw up.

    Try again with the radeon driver, but try these changes

    1. In the "Monitor" section comment out the HorizSync and VertRefresh

    2. Change the "Screen" Section to:

    Code:
    Section "Screen"
            Identifier "Screen0"
            Device     "Card0"
            Monitor    "Monitor0"
    		  DefaultDepth    16
            SubSection "Display"
                    Viewport   0 0
                    Depth     16
                    Modes    "1280x1024"
            EndSubSection
    EndSection
    or

    Code:
    Section "Screen"
            Identifier "Screen0"
            Device     "Card0"
            Monitor    "Monitor0"
    		  DefaultDepth    24
            SubSection "Display"
                    Viewport   0 0
                    Depth     24
                    Modes    "1280x1024"
            EndSubSection
    EndSection
    I'm using a similar card (xpress 1100 seigned for amd cpu's rather than the 1200 (ntel cpu's) and can do a dual screen (1280x800) and (1920x1080 HD)
    with the ati binary driver or single screen (1280x800) ot (1920x1080 HD) with xorg radeon driver
    In a world without walls and fences, who needs Windows and Gates?
