its driver-x86_32-4.4.0.tar.gz for a Matrox g400 (mga drivers don't work) so now how can i make it so the video card will use or reconize this driver. where do I put it or what do I do ? I'm using ubuntu 11.04.

You'll most likely have to compile the driver yourself (just my guess however as it's compressed).

Open the terminal, cd to the directory where the *.tar.gz is saved.
"tar -xvzf driver-x86_32-4.4.0.tar.gz" without the quotes will un-tar the archive

If you do need to compile from source, you'll need to:

"cd driver-x86_32-4.4.0"
"make install"

Hopefully that will do the trick for you.
