Diamond Viper 550AGP recognized as rivaTNT

During GUI install my Diamond Viper 550AGP is recognized as rivaTNT,
alltough the Viper550 is also in the list.
The memory is detected (?) as 256kB , should be 16 MB ( in TUI it is
preset at 8MB ).
It is a TNT based card and it works, but it would be nice to
list it by it's real name.
As for the card name, that is foremost a convenience for people manually
specifying their cards. As it is a TnT-based card, this is not a bug.
As for the memory detection (done by kudzu), the Nvidia cards doesn't seem to
return the correct values all the time - mostly they seem to return "4 MB" on
this VESA BIOS call no matter what they have.
