Deal with one problem at a time. You might want to break this thread

ISA SoundBlaster 16".
i install woody but X and sound do not work.
i have used Debian 1.2/2.0/2.1/2.2, but never have
i use Trident 9680 video card/SB 16 sound card(ISA).
could you send me XF86Config-4 and related .config of
kernel for sound setting?
Run "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-common" and/or "dpkg-reconfigure
xserver-xfree86" to see if you can get a working configuration for X.
Better yet, post the error messages that "startx" generates. It may be
something simple like your mouse is set to the wrong port (which can be
fixed by running one of those two commands above - I forget which; or by
manually editing /etc/X11/XF86Config-4).
ISA stuff can be a bear to set up. Start by posting the output of "dmesg".
