FVWM95 works fine if you really like to things ala '95.

Configure PPP by running pppconfig, which much easier to setup than
manually editing the files.

XF86Setup or xf86config whichever one you prefer. XF86Setup has a
graphical but you need the vga16 xserver. I think svgalib support
MACH64's by now. Anyway I can run xaos on svga mode using a MACH64 card.
Haven't tried if squake runs but xquake runs although much slower.

See if your NIC is supported on debian.org website.
