The 32 Bit PCI Slots have a Bandwidth of 1133MBps.

And I know they connect to the Southbridge BUSS.

But if you have three PCI Slots and you have a FAX Card in one and a Graphics Card in another.

And they both are working at the same time am I right the 1133MBps Bandwidth will be split between the two of them?

PCI bus is shared. If you have a gfx card and a fax card on PCI then they both share the same data path.
PCI-e on the other hand is a point to point connection and devices connected here have a dedicated lane to the chipset.

Confirm which one you have and you have you know if it's shared or not.

P.S. It's not that basic/simple but yeah.
