I have installed an nVidia FX 5200 PCi.  It works very well so far.
I am in the midst of building kde base now. Once that is done, I will=20
try it.

I have a couple of S3 cards, a Mach64, ati 7000, and the FX card.
I will try them all once the KDE build is done.

Then I will see what I can do under Linux emulation.
