i have a 1996 4x4 16v geo tracker when u let out the clutch it makes kind of a grinding sound when the wheels get going a little faster the the trans and takes some of the pressure off the grinding gets quite then when it startes to get a load the sound gets louder. i figured throw out bearing but also u only have like let the clutch out maybe a inch and it takes off so i just wanted to make sure it wasnt just the cable out of ajustment before i pulled the whole tranny out and replaced the clutch pressure plate and throw out bearing

You can check the cable by having someone in the car, and then getting under the car where the cable connects to the tranny. Push the lever at the end of the cable in, until you feel resistance, hold it there, and have the person in the car depress the clutch pedal. The cable should move forward one inch - the rubber sheath should not move at all. If the cable behaves this way, then the adjustment on it should be correct.

Sounds like to me it is the bearings in the tranny that is making the noise.

When you let out on the clutch, the throw out bearing isn't spinning, so it wouldn't make any noise (that is, as long as you have the clutch cable adjusted correctly, so the TO bearings isn't riding against the pressure plate fingers, when the clutch pedal is released).
