  Support for the second head on G400 cards requires a binary-only
  "mga_hal" module that  is  available  from Matrox 
  <>, and may be on the CD supplied with the card.

With any luck, it'll load automatically after you drop it into
"/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/" and restart the X server, or you might
have to generate a new XF86Config file. [I've looked into this, because I
have an MGA550, but I've never gotten around to adding a second monitor.]
