An easy question for DSL
I have Damn Small Linux distro on an old old laptop (the only distro linux will run on) and I have graphics problems, a green hue colored screen, which of course, is a video display driver problem.
So looking into the problem, I was told to go and install the neomagic drivers for my laptop, I ran into drivers, but I don't think that .o is the file extension I need ("neomagic_drv.o")
So, I could use some help finding out where to get neomagic video drivers for my laptop (Dell Latitude CP M166ST) and step by step instructions on how to install the drivers, I am new to linux and because I can't make out any of the text on the screen (default video drivers are bad) so I can't see what I'm clicking.

Hello and Welcome.
I would suggest that you try to issue this command and post the results back here please. It should tell us which Video card you have and which driver you are currently using.
lspci |grep VGA && cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf |grep Driver
