Thanks, you're right.
Setting to 18 do it :)
A 'XFree86 -scanpci -verbose' and the 18 was there.
But there must be something wrong with X; it's slow, slow....
I've setted the depht to 8 (1024/768) and only blackbox would start.
The card mem is 2048K. and 128M on motherboard. Was enough on 
another machine to run everything.
Swap = 150M. Pentium 233MMX.
What would be still wrong ? To little HD space ?
