I have SuSE Linux 2.0.0 and a ATI 3d Rage II PCI graphics card which is reported as an unknown PCI device. How can I
fix this problem?

Try to upgrade your kernel to 2.0.30

I have a friend who has a newer kernel SuSE 5.0.0 or so. But
there occured the same problem when booting the kernel from
CD (dmesg: unknown PCI device...). Do you think my ATI will be recognized when the kernel is installed on HD? I don't think.
By the way, a version of SuperProbe finds out that I have an
ATI card. But there's no special option for ATI 3d Rage II.

There's a file called '/usr/src/linux/include/pci.h'
In these file there's a lot of defines.
If you want you may define your device there
But If I'm not mistaken you don't need to do it.
