How 'bout simply booting a Knoppix CD, letting the tools to their job to
create the ideal XF86Config, then simply copy it to your Fedora install? That
way, you're getting a config that matches up directly with your hardware
(though his may work just as well). So far as I know, that should do the job,
unless there is something about DVI on the Matrox cards that requires a
kernel feature not in the Fedora kernels...
