Yes you can upgrade the Graphics Card on the Acer Z5801. There is an optional Graphics Card slot on the Motherboard and you will need an Acer Geforce GT 530 Graphics Card. They come in 1GB and 2GB but quite rare to find. Your best shot is an Acer Distributor. For more help have a look at the link below:
Acer TravelMate 634LC is reported to work on debian. http://classic-web.archive.org/web/20050118085615/http://rivy.student.khleuven.be/acertm/ You can try and download drivers for your graphics card here: http://www.nvidia.co.uk/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-uk
Make sure your battery is out of the unit, then open up the back, check the graphics card(normally with acer the graphics card is in the right hand corner(if upside down)) and make sure it is plugged in, If it is a pci card, probably not, then just jiggle the card round a bit to make sure it has contact.
Hope that helps
Unfortunately you wont be able to upgrade to a graphics card, as only high end gaming laptops come with a seperate graphics card, most other laptops have only on board graphics,it may help if you install more memory then allow more graphics memory to be used, normally laptops only use 16mb - 32mb of graphic memory, which can be increased, although your on board graphics may not be good enough for modern gaming
