How to Install tar.gz package
So I got the linux video display card driver downloads tar.gz for my
intel 915g site for i810 is not suited for this type.
Now just I want to know step-by-step instructions on how to install this
driver package or installation from the tar.gz file on debian.
Eagerly waiting for the reply.

Try to leave that field empty. If you only have one video card in your
computer you should not have to specify the bus ID.
If that should not work for some reason: You can find the bus ID by
running "lspci" and checking the line that describes your video card.
For example, I have an integrated card that uses the same driver and the
0000:00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82852/855GM
Integrated Graphics Device (rev 02)
The first number is the bus ID; for the xserver it has to be entered as
"PCI:0:2:0" (without the quotation marks). Like I said, normally you
should not have to bother with this. You will probably also be asked
about "video ram"; here, too, it should be enough to accept what the
dialog proposes, or to leave the field empty.
Report back if you encounter any problems with the defaults.
