Only less than two weeks ago someone else was complaining his ET6 card does not
work in SUSE after v9.3.

I have 6 Linux systems that have ET6x00 cards installed. These cards were
relatively low price and high performance for their day, and so were, and
probably still are, relatively common in old systems with enough power to run
current distros, including those using badly in need of replacing Win9x
versions with Linux.

Now too with PCI Express slots replacing AGP slots people look for inexpensive
alternatives to high cost PCI Express graphics cards. One such alternative is
good old PCI cards like these Tseng cards, particularly if replacing an old
system that has one with a new system or motherboard without AGP slot or
onboard video.

It shouldn't be hard or too much to ask to add for Tseng a VideoRAM of 2.0M so
a user can at least get the system installed and a basic xorg.conf file from
which he can later correct the size if necessary. If this is too much to ask,
then it deserves a relnote that would probably amount to more effort to create
than a fix.

Or, SUSE can just make this wontfix and give more people reason to choose
Fedora or Ubuntu instead.
