It shouldn't be a problem. When I added my GeForce FX 5700LE, it was
automatically detected (checked with lspci). To enable 3D acceleration
you can install nvidia driver using the module-assistant method (see
link below). After that you install nvidia module I think you will have
to run dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg (Etch).
You can also use the nv module (free) by just reconfiguring Xorg if you
don't want to use the proprietary nvidia drivers.
