Get Matrox Millenium video card working in Ubuntu 9.10

I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 on an old PC and it is mostly working, except for some heavy drawing defects that show up whenever I start dragging a window or scrolling inside a window or menu. It looks like the video driver copies the rectangle being moved to the wrong location.

"This thread has a solution: http://ubuntuforumsdotorg/showthread.php?t=878780

in your xorg.conf file where it says DefaultDepth 24 change this to read DefaultDepth 16, maybe even try making it 8, but I know 16 works. The card doesn't have enough memory to run any higher than 800x600 at 24 depth, so by changing the depth you will free up enough memory to run at higher resolutions"
