I've got Etch running on an HP/Compaq Proliant DL590 w/ 2 Merced processors. I was able to use a netinstall cd from a while back (~6-7 months ago). Everything worked out of the box, except for the detection of my raid card. I was able to fix that with a modprobe. I would try experimenting with the netinstall CDs.
I don't know much about the 3D acceleration. If you would like some more info on the netinstall cd I used, let me know and I will dig it out of my junk heap of discs.

We have Sarge (3.1) on an i2000 1x733 nvQuadro2. X has not worked.
We booted the i2000 1x733 on the etch netinstall cd.
The install gui comes up but then after initrd.gz uncompresses,
& the system hangs.
Tried it on another i2000 Windows system and that did the same thing.
Booted on the 3.1 netinst CD as a sanity check and that comes up.
