The 8bit TGA2 should work for you, the product name is, IIRC, the
PowerStorm 3D30.  Also, I think that the ZLXp-E2 works in console
mode and X support is under development.  I will provide support
for the 32bit TGA2 cards as soon as I can lay my hands on one
(marketting name (I think): PowerStorm 4D20.)
