Default Black screen (X wont start) with 1.0-4363 drivers

I have a Nvidia 5200FX card so I'm not sure if the card is supported by the 1.0-4363 drivers.

I have SuSE 8.2 and while booting up into Linux, X just shows a black screen, forcing me to manualy reset my computer. However, in safemode linux works fine with X booting up and displaying the Nvidia logo.
Configuring SaX2 I noticed that my driver is described as Nvidia 0x0322 but there is no option to choose drivers for my video card (FX 5200).
I would like to work with SuSE in regular mode and if there is a workaround I'd appreciate it.
