It's not complicated, but you /must/ follow directions. Get the 2.2.18-ide kernel image from /debian/pool/main/k/kernel-image-2.2.18-i386/ on a Debian mirror. The actual package name is kernel-image-2.2.18-ide_2.2.18-1_i386.deb. You need this kernel to make sure it works, because it has special Matrox FB acceleration stuffs built in; I still haven't figured out which ones...
Get the mga_drv.o module from Matrox, the latest one possible. It can be found in binary form here:
Use the official XFree86 4.0.2 debs, with this kernel image, and this module. I used XFree86 -configure to generate an XF86Config-4 file, but that needs a bit of hand-trimming as well. If you like, I can send you a copy of my file.
