Question WXGA resolution of 1366 X 768

I am trying to build a multimedia computer using Linux (have not decided on distro yet bit Suse 9.2 is my most probable choice)
I will connect this computer to a LCD TV 32" with DVI input that has a maximum resolution of 1366 X 768 (WXGA). I have looked everywhere for a graphics card that can do this and found only one company in the UK that does this.

The problem is that they only have drivers for Windows.

My questions:-
Do you think that some Linux distro will be able to work with this card? Will it be able to display 1366X768? Can kernel 2.6.x 'see' the supported resolutions from the card?
Anyone knows of another graphics card that can do this?
Anyone ever tried to display such a resolution?
