I don't run SuSE anymore and I haven't upgraded to the 8800 series (yet) so I can't comment on your main stability problem, but I thought I'd mention that what is usually called 32 bit color is just 24 bit with an 8 bit buffer or alpha channel.
So, 24 bit is the same as what is often called 32.
Just run 24 and don't lose sleep over it.
2^24 = 16777216 so with 24 bits you could have a different color on every pixel on a 19 inch LCD and still have room to spare.
