You can see from this that your card is a TGA2, not a ZLXp-E3, which would
show up as TGA. Contrary to popular opinion, TGA2 cards are not compatible
with TGA cards and are not supported by Linux (or *BSD).

If enough demand develops I may look into writing drivers for these cards
but they are apparently very Evil, using a Cirrus Logic chip to implement
VGA text mode and a gate array to implement TGA-ish 2D.
