I am a Linux Newbie.  I have just installed Red Hat version 4.1 with  XFree86  onto my P133 machine.  The only issue that I have had is that I can not get into X windows because there is no support for my Video Card.  I am using a Matrox Mystique with 4 Megs of RAM.  I see that there is support for the Millinium but not the Mystique.  If someone could let me know where I could download some drivers from it would be greatly appreciated.

Try www.xfree.org. Download the latest version of Xfree86 for linux (about 10 .tar.gz files), read the README and RELNOTES files, they tell you how to install the programs.

I've got a 4Mb Mystique and am running RedHat 4.1 quite happily. However it's such a long time (about 2 years) since I installed it and got X running that I can't quite remember what I did. However the latest version of Xfree86 is always a good bet for general bug fixes and speed ups.
