I think it's commonly called ati rage 128.
It's everywhere - covered in the kernel module (iirc) and certainly available as xf86-video-Something.

Theres a few ATI rage cards, and the naming sequence is confusing.

Rage I
Rage 3D
Rage II
Rage Pro
Rage 128 XX
Rage XL/XC
Rage 128 Pro
Rage Fury

None of them have support for microsoft OSes after XP. None of them can use the ATI/AMD closed drivers with any modern version of linux. The only real option for linux is xserver-xorg-video-ati and xserver-xorg-video-r128.
