Most definitely not. The only problem you might see is the (relatively) old kernel that SuSE 7 will be using might not have support for DMA on your IDE controller. But that depends on which chipset it specifically is, and which kernel version SuSE 7 uses. Regardless, you will be able to run in normal IDE mode, at least until you update your kernel. If you pull a recent kernel off, it should be able to enable DMA on your IDE channel. But AGP should work either way (assuming it's a 2.4 kernel, which it should be).

b) the suse7.2 or suse7.3 drivers will work?
The nVidia drivers for SuSE 7.2 or 7.3? These almost assuredly will not work. You'll have to make sure you install kernel-source when you install SuSE (it's a package name; you might have to choose expert install to be able to get to the point where you can choose it), but once you do that, you should be able to use the .tar.gz drivers.
