Two Video Adapters - disable one?

I just upgraded my Linux system with a new PCI video
card, to replace the one built into my motherboard
(also PCI). Now, Linux (2.1.44-pre3) and in particular
XFree 3.3 are seeing both video Adapter. Xfree86 especially
is still using the old video Adapter.

Is there anyway via the kernel I can tell it to basically
turn off/ignore the old video adapter. I've checked my
BIOS & motherboard, and can't find anyway to do it there.
It works fine in Win/Dos.

The first one is the new one - YES I added it to pci.h and pci.c,
on the chance that would do it.

PCI devices found:
Bus 0, device 19, function 0:
VGA compatible controller: Sierra (Canopus) Sierra Screamin-3D (rev 3).
Medium devsel. Fast back-to-back capable. IRQ 255. Master Capable. Latency=66.
Prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xfb000000.
I/O at 0xfc00.
Bus 0, device 8, function 0:
VGA compatible controller: S3 Inc. Trio32/Trio64 (rev 83).
Medium devsel. IRQ 255.
Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xf4000000.

Any help would be appreciated. (Robert A. Yetman)
