The Radeon 8500LE should work just fine.  That's what I have in my
Supermicro P6DGE motherboard right now.  The motherboard is 3 or 4
years old now.

Run redhat-config-xfree86 and set the thing to run with 16-bit color
(3D only works at 16-bit color).  Then go into the "Advanced" tab
(IIRC) and check the "Hardware 3D acceleration" checkbox.

We've had a Voodoo 3 3000 either in my computer or Kara's for the last
3 years or so now.  It will work just fine.
