I have try it but no sucsses yet. By the way I have tested this video card
in MS DOS by the program 'whatvga'. It have determines two modes: 
'RealTek 3105' and 'VESA'. When I have test card by 'whatvga' I have
find it does work well in mode 'RealTek 3105' and it does not work
at all in mode 'VESA'. When I try VESA mode computer has hung. Also it
hungs when I try VESA mode in Lunux. I am not familar with VESA. Does this
mean computer should have VLB bus (my motherboard is PCI) or it can work
with PCI buss (video card is in ISA slot)?

Moreover I have a problem when I compile svgalib. I should comment
driver FB_DEV_DRIVER or I have undetermined symbols and 'make' stops. May
be this is a reason? What to do if it is so?
