Matrox Millenium II and AGP controller conflict

This is very odd (methinks, anyway :)

I'm using the Matrox Millenium II AGP video card and things are working fine, and the Device Manager shows no conflicts, but if I actually look at the resource tab for the video card, it says:

Memory Range E3000000 - E3FFFFFF used by:
    Intel 82443BX Pentium(r) II Processor to AGP Controller
Memory Range E0800000 - E0803FFF used by:
    Intel 82443BX Pentium(r) II Processor to AGP Controller
Memory Range E0000000 - E07FFFFF used by:
    Intel 82443BX Pentium(r) II Processor to AGP Controller

And vice versa (the Intel 82443BX will report a conflict
with the Matrox Millenium II AGP PowerDesk).

However, insofar as I can tell, everything is working ok.

For reference, my motherboard is an Asus P2B-S, w/ all the
drivers from the CD installed.  I'm running Win95 OSR2.

Does anyone have any ideas about what is up?  If I try to
manually configure the devices, it seems to end up breaking everything (i.e. the system restarts in the default VGA mode).  If there's no harm done with the current set up,
I'm content with it, but if there is a way to get rid of the conflict, that'll be even better!  :)

Thanks,

True, this is strange.  Unfortunately,  I have not yet dived into this relatively new realm.   However, I have heard about problems with AGP drivers from Matrox.  Check there web site for updates to the drivers and a diagnostics program.  Better yet, call them - that's what tech. support is for.

Good luck,
Shawn
