Matrox Millenium P650 with Debian

I've just ordered Matrox Millenium P650. Can I use this card with Debian? I've checked the Matrox website, and the only drivers listed are Red Hat-drivers. Shame on me for not doing proper research before buying

The webshop said that Linux-drivers are available, and I trusted them. Is it possible to run those Red Hat drivers on a Debian system? They've got the extension ".run".

Does anyone know if I can get X running at all with this card on Debian?

Hi corwax,
i am using the Matrox-Driver for RedHat 9.0 and Mandrake 9.2. It should work for all Linux-Distributions. - Much fun with your P650!

The rh8.0-script will work too. I found out reading the Matrox-support forum. Thanks anyway!

I'm not sure if you guys still check this, but I was wondering if one of you could post your XF86Config File. I have a p650 but can't get it to work with both monitors. I"m sure its something silly.

I've downloaded the drivers and all that from Matrox.
