Matrox Millenum II under XFree86 [was: Which Linux distribution???]

I'm having a little trouble with configuring my card.  I have the 250MHz
type with 8 megs of ram..  anyhow, when I switch to another console and
return, the screen is shifted about 5" and wrapped around the other side..
Also, the X doesn't fill the screen correctly -- squished vertically and
too wide horizontailly...  Any suggestions?

I have a Dell 17" monitor (D1728D-LS)

...I did try RedHat 5.0 and it detected the board and ran fine... but
there were many other issues way I when back to Debian..

Here is what SuperProbe -verbose outputs:

BIOS Base address = 0xC0000
