There is a strange thing: MorphOs boot only with original geforce installed (any slot), with only the x86 radeon the cdrom not start loading.
Yes, thats some Apple 'feature'...
OF needs to see an OF capable card or the machine won't do anything meaningful at all (on any OS).
And thanks for testing all those cards and sharing the interesting results! I had tested an X1550 too which did boot but only showed a garbled Ambient screen. What a pity since this is a passively cooled card which would be ideal for my liking. The X1600 Pro I use now runs fine on MorphOS & Linux but it's fan is the noisiest part of the G5.
