I have installed it from .rpm through alie, I neede to save the
configutration file XF86Config in root's home and then move it to its
default location. Also I made X to be a simbolic link to Matrx server.
It is working fine for me (on 3 machines).
If I don't fail there will be supported for Millennium G200 in svga
server in Xfree86 3.3.3 It may be an option for you to wait until then.
