AFAIK XFree86 3.3.2 did not support Matrox MGA-100.
Check at http://www.xfree.org or at http://www.suse.de for XFree86 3.3.3,
then setup your /etc/XF86Config.

You must download the latest XFree86 version from www.XFree86.org if you want your card runs. Its a problem of the AGP architecture.

I´ve just installed the Xfree 3.3.2 you must look in www.XFree86.org and they
   have a RELNOTES file with the graphics
    card supported and the files required for its instalation.
   You will have to unload several files:
     preinst.sh
     postinst.sh
     extract
     several X332* files. They will depend of you graphic card.
   I suggest you to read the help files before the instalation. Perhaps you graphic
   card doesnt
    be supported in this release either.

   good look.
