I can almost get signal from g10 just 2 channels I think I am running into a tree, I do get signal from 15w to 119w.

A friend gave me an old directv dish and I was wondering if I could point this to g10 using the lnb's it came with(I have 3) or do I need to get fta lnb or is it to small(it's 24x18)?

For the FTA, the minimum size dish required is 30 inches. The directv dish is way too small to pick up g10R.
I don't know how big your directtv dish is but I have used a dishnet superdish for IA5 in the past, You may want to get a new more sensitive lnb first before replacing the dish. How big is your directtv dish? 30 inch or larger is your best bet.
barkin' up the wrong tree

Looks like a DirecTV Phase II dish.
Also known as Para Todos (for all), or Direct Plus.
It's got mounting locations for 3 LNBs. you said...
(or, you could put two LNBs at the in-between holes - there are five sets)

If you'll take a look at what IceBerg said in the 2nd post of this thread, I think you'll get your questions answered.
Basically, for real FTA, it's useless.

But, with a mechanically interchangable LNB, it might get you the birds/channels mentioned in the post above... :)

edit: As for what you can get with what you got, read IceBerg in this thread.
