Ok Thanks so much ;)

But another question. I have downloaded beta source and binary drivers from 
matrox. Binary are compiled only for XFree4.3 and source hmmm I simply can't 
find how to compile it. Can I use binary from XFree4.3 with compiled 
from CVS or is it possible to compile drivers and how can I do it?
