I'm not sure if this helps, but I just completed a network install on my
Sony VAIO laptop with an i815 graphics card.  Since I can't boot off the
CD-ROM drive with the newer (post FC2) non-floppy-emulated iso's, I had
to PXE boot the installer and so didn't actually do the graphical
install.  However, after the install was finished I noted that the
graphics in X were . . . weird.  Things didn't update properly and other
weirdness. (Pull down the menus, have the desktop icons disappear,
widgets don't appear until you mouse-over them, etc.)  There is a bug in
bugzilla related to i815 cards crashing that may have something to do
with your problem.  It is marked as fixed in the latest FC3 xorg
releases, however, so maybe not.
