Actually, I got it working today....  I had *thought* my matroxfb_maven
driver was being loaded, but it wasn't (something funky in my modules.conf).
If I load that by hand, then the instructions work as advertised.

Thanks for all the help.

Is anyone interested in the kernels that I've built for this in rpm format
for redhat 8 (based on the redhat 2.4.18-18.8.0 kernel)???  It sure makes
for an easy install :)  It should give fb support to any G200/G400.
