Driver for HP Visualize FX5 Videocard

Hey all, I ran across a computer the other day - I got it for free as it was dead. Opening it up I noticed a very cool videocard. The machine is an HP Visualize X-Class, and the videocard works fine. Some google research showed me that the videcard was an HP Visualize FX5, This card according to all my research had 4 dedicated opengl accelerators, hence the 4 massive heat sinks. HP used to provide an xserver and a kernel module driver, but all links to them seem to be broken. The card simpply gets detected as a Matrox MGA200, and the performance is terrible. I need to find some drivers for this card, and considering they were designed with linux support in mind I'd think this would be easy to find, and yet they are not at all, any suggestions?
