Thanks for the reply. I can't send the card back, as it's not mine. It belongs to my employer.
I did have an ASUS video card installed, but the fan was starting to go bad and I didn't want to fry it when I was in the middle of a project. The only video card left, that was more than 32 mb was the parhelia, so in it goes. They won't buy me a new card either, since the linux box I was working on was 'undocumented' (I work for a municipality). Since I had to get a box going right away, and without obvious problems, I bit the bullet and put xp on it.
Hopefully in the future I can go back to suse. I've still got it installed at home though.
