Don't use the generic VGA driver. Use the fbdev (frame buffer device driver).

How do i do that ?

Enter the following as root:

dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

Choose fbdev as the driver. Or you could manually edit the XF86Config-4 file:
vi /etc/X11/XF86Config-4

and how to install fvwm ?

Use dselect
Login as root. <dselect>

Enter the </> key and do a search for "fvwm"
The dselect utility will find fvwm (frame view window manager) and any other programs
it needs to install to run.

Learn to use dselect (deb select). It's quite a powerful little program that selects debian packages (debs)
and their dependencies.

Have you tried using tasksel? Just run it and just install the X Window System to get started. If you're new to Linux, this is about the easiest way to go. You still have to edit the XR86Config-4 file, though.
