I too have that exact video card. It's a great card but it does require a
special X server. You need S.u.S.E's Elsa_GLoria server. You can acquire
this at http://www.suse.com/. Just follow the links to their X page and to
their Elsa_GLoria card. Installation instructions are also given on the
page. One thing they don't tell you though that you have to do under
Debian is delete the 'X' bin that should be in /usr/X11R6/bin and then
just link the Elsa_GLoria bin (XSuSE_Elsa_GLoria I believe) to 'X'. If you
have any other problems after doing this feel free to mail me.
