This is all utter nonsense, yes the VESA modes do not go below 640x400 but
look at the VESA specifications and lo and behold there are no VESA modes
640x400 (MODE 0100h).
And about UNIVBE, dump that shitty stuff you don't need it for the Matrox
cause the whole VESA 2.0 stuff is implemented in ROM.
AFAIK Univbe doesn't even know what a Matrox Millenium is anyway, last time
tried (with v5.2 or so) it still did detect an 'oak' chipset.
About the 320x200 mode : RTFM!!!
That's mode 13h standard vga, and that works on the Matrox like a blaze.
About the Matrox Mistyque i don't know, but about what i did read it is a
downgraded Millenium especially designed for playing games.
