Are you planning on extending it all the way to 100? If not, you could just turn it into a table, giving the more 'common' results more numbers so that a all rolls of 00-99 have wild talent.

Isn't this sort of thing usually 1-99 for normal results with 100 being "choose any wild talent". Or 99 being "choose any wild talent" and 100 being "roll twice rerolling any results of 100"?

Depends. I'll have to roll percentile dice and consult Chart 2.52 - "Finishing Touches on a Variable Selection Chart" on page 377 in chapter 2 of the hardbound "Understanding AD&D" book... :|
