Are there any new drivers for the newer 4 mb Matrox
Millenium II card.  The listed driver in Caldera's configX
references an older chipset.  It just plain will not run or
it comes up REALLY GIANT and I can't see but a small corner
of the screen.  Much thanks for any help!

The newer 4 mb Matrox Millenium is supported by Metro-X 4.1.0.  Based on what is referenced in Caldera's docs on their Metro-X, it appears that the Caldera distrib uses ver 3.1.5, where the Millenium II is not supported.  It is worthwhile to note, however, and I'm not trying to patronize at all, if you have Caldera 1.2 or 1.1 Lite, you don't get the Metro-X server.  You get XFree86 instead.  If you do have Metro-X 3.1.5, I'd reccommend either buying the newer version of Metro X or getting XFree86 3.3.2 instead, which supports that card.  You can go to http://www.xfree86.org to get it.  Hope this answers  your questions, and feel free to email me.  Our mail servers will be down for a few days (spring break and new electrical wiring being installed), so you can hold your questions 'till Monday, or ju st post a comment.  Hope this helped!

Best Wishes,
