If I load the fb module [I think that tdfxfb is the correct module],
only can see movies in console, because at X my system CRASHES.

[Do you know what is the correct fb module for this video card]
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: 3Dfx Interactive, Inc. Voodoo Banshee
(rev 03) (prog-if 00 [VGA]) Subsystem: Diamond Multimedia Systems Monster Fusion AGP

My linux distribution is Debian/unstable.
