I have a Matrox G400Max in a 32 bit dual P4 Xeon machine, with a 
1280x1024 LCD screen. It worked OK with the original FC9 DVD. It gave 
trouble through various updates. I had to stick to the original kernel, 
or the picture would go crazy. Things started working properly again 
with the xorg update that happened about a week ago - i.e. 
xorg-x11-server-Xorg- + 
kernel- have been working nicely for me.
