Nope, just a regular x86 system here.

Hmmm, if videoram is correctly specified, then I'm afraid I don't
know what's causing your problems. The known problems with your
card and XFree86 are listed at

Like I said, I have never experienced lockups caused by the Mill II myself.

If you have 8 meg of videoram you could try to put 4 meg in XF86Config
and see if it's still locking up... just a thought. Or contact the
XFree authors.
