Not really; and besides this is rather hard to do if this is a
laptop with an integrated video which is very often the case with
these chipsets.  In any case this is a piece of Xorg.0.log from a
laptop with F10 installed on it (it required also in a boot command
'clocksource=jiffies' before that started to work):

.....
(==) intel(0): Default visual is TrueColor
(**) intel(0): Option "NoAccel"
(II) intel(0): Integrated Graphics Chipset: Intel(R) 845G
(--) intel(0): Chipset: "845G"
.....

The driver in question claims the following support:

(II) intel: Driver for Intel Integrated Graphics Chipsets: i810,
        i810-dc100, i810e, i815, i830M, 845G, 852GM/855GM, 865G, 915G,
        E7221 (i915), 915GM, 945G, 945GM, 945GME, 965G, G35, 965Q, 946GZ,
        965GM, 965GME/GLE, G33, Q35, Q33,
        Mobile IntelĀ® GM45 Express Chipset,
        Intel Integrated Graphics Device, G45/G43, Q45/Q43, G41

so if it does not then this is a bug.  Unfortunately it is not hard
to find those for that driver in bugzilla.

Now it is a time to read 'man intel'.  It definitely would be nicer
if that would work straight "out-of-the-box" but if it does not ....
