being a picky git, i'd say that yes suse will run on any graphics card.. BUT you mean will X (windows) run on it, which isn't anything to do with suse per se. the cards supported are listed at

http://www.xfree86.org/4.2.0/Status.html

but bascailly, yes they'll all work fine (maybe not the trident). you'll probably want to get the officail X drivers from nvidia.com at some point tho, although you should strictly need them.

Well I have an Nvidia GeForce 2 MX 400 AGp 4x. and I'm running Suse 7.3 just fine. Nvidia has updated drivers for 7.3 and maybe 8.0.
So GeForce2 + Suse 7.3 = yes
GeForce2 + Suse 8.0 = maybe (check nvidia site)
