No DirectDraw with Matrox G550 DualHead (AGP) graphics card

I have the Matrox G550 DualHead (AGP) graphics card in my computer. I run Ubuntu 7.10 and the latest version of Virtual Box, 1.5.2.
As guest OS i run my licensed Windows XP Pro SP2. Everything works fine except the graphics. Normal desktop using, surfing, MS Office and so on is no problem at all, but today i decided to install the old and famous Age of Empires II. No heavy, fancy graphics in my opinion, but no. No DirectDraw support. No 3D at all. (I've tried different startup-option refering to Microsoft's help-database-jada-jada).
I started dxdiag and it gave the same answer, no bouncing box inside another box = no DirectDraw.
What is the solution to this? I tried searching för "Matrox" in this forum and i got, guess what, zero ;-) I found an post ( http://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/618) concerning this (I think), but it was closed. Is there a solution to this problem?
