WD/Paradise PCI video card

My boss at work said I could install Linux on one of our
Pentiums. I have looked in the appropriate howtos for all
the hardware and have found everything with one exception.

The video card. I know it is a Western Digital/Paradise
card but that's it. I can't find the chipset printed on
the card anywhere and there is no documentation to be

The hardware howto and it lists WD cards as accelerated
and WD/P cards as unaccelrated but I don't know the exact
chipset of my card. I'm gonna guess that mine is an unaccelrated
card and I should use the WD/P video driver that comes with

Any help or advice?

1. Slakware 3.0 & WD Paradise Bahamas Video Card

First off, I'm green, 'k?

I just installed Slakware 3.0 in a 486i/32M with a  WD Paradise Bahamas
Video Card (S3 chipset). Now, the XConfig doesn't mention this card by name
(or I'm blind/not looking in the right place), but it does name a lot of
other cards that use the S3.

I don't want to guess which settings to use, and I've never set up X
before--actually, I had a version of RedHat with X, but I didn't do
anything, if you know what I mean. The RedHat install program did it all.

I figure someone out here might be able to tell me exactly where to go (no,
not there...I know the way) to get the info I need.

If it matters, and I'm sure it will, I've got an old Orchestra/Trumpet 14"
SVGA monitor.

Any help I get to successfully install X on my box will result in the
provider receiving my heart-felt thanks, and possibly having me name my
first-born after them, or the pet of their choice.

Thanks in advance.
