Xfree and Matrox Mill-2 Card

I have a Matrox Millenium 2 card and cannot figure out which
server to use. I have tried most of them and can only get
the squashed 300x200 resolution. The server says it is an
unrecognized chipset. What do I need to do to get this card
to work?
Thanks,
Chuck

Matrox Millenium II isn't coompatible with XFree :((

I have exactly the same problem (I'm using slackware 3.2).  I just put my new video card (Matrox Mill 2) in my machine, and have some silly minimal resolution.

I've resulted to using the 'unsupported VGA' card option
in xf86setup.  This at least lets you run at a half decent
resolution (800x600), even if it is only in 16 colours, and doesn't use graphics accelaration.  If you get a proper answer, I'd be very curious to know.
