# lspci| grep -i nvidia
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation: Unknown device 
0322 (rev a1)
# scanpci| grep -i nvidia
  nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5200]

Couldn't be easier (:  The NVidia proprietry driver autodetects the 
rest.  Just you'll have to find a list of cards known only to work with 
the "nv" driver.  There's plenty of distress calls on the NVidia forums.

However, you may have to watch out if you have an nForce motherboard, 
showing up there.  Though since I don't own an nForce I can't confirm 
it.  "lspci| grep VGA| grep -i nvidia"  could be an acceptable workaround.
