Default Problem with GeForce 7950GT under Linux

I have an odd problem nobody else seems to have: My Geforce 7950GT won't install properly - it only runs under "Framebuffer Graphics" so that I don't have 3D functionality.

My system:
SuSE 10.1 (didn't work on 10.2, Ubuntu 6 or Knoppix).
GeForce 7950 GT (PCIe)
Gigabyte M55plus-S3G

I installed the driver according to nvidias Website und started sax, but only got a black monitor. The system, however, seems to run normally, because when I hit RETURN twice I got back to the console.

Entering sax2 -p lists:

Chip:0 -> VESA Framebuffer Graphics 02:00:0 0x10de 0x0295 AGP fbdev.

If you want any logs, please state so (and have a little patience as I am currently running under Windows and have to reboot to access the log files).
