linux & compaq old tape system

 HI all !
 I've got 2 problems :
 first one is that i'd like to use an old compaq tape device,
 working with a 'Diagram 000775' adapter card. It seems that
 this is non SCSI device but a proprietary thing. Does anyone know
 if there is a way to use that thing under Linux ?
 Second one is that my S3trio64+ is not working well under Xfree3.2.
 The titles on the windows are unreadable, there are many parasites.
 Does someone know about that ?


1. Old Compaq linux system?

Does anyone know of any problems I might have installing linux on a 486
Compaq? I tried to install a small version of linux, made for a smaller
(older) computer, and it said it could not mount my hard drive. Could this
be due to the fact that I didn't reformat and left Windows on it? Or is it
more likely a problem with proprietary hard drive drivers? it is a Compaq
Deskpro XE 433s with 8 MB of RAM and a 210 (about) MB hard drive. It has a
floppy, but no CD-ROM, so that's not an option. If anyone can help, I would
greatly appreciate it.


2. Getting LOAD averages and SWAP space usage from kernel
