Re: FC5 laptop install; incorrect graphics driver

I just did a fresh install of FC5 on my laptop, which has a Intel
915GM graphics chipset. For some reason, anaconda didn't correctly
detect this and chose what appears to be an incorrect graphics driver;

I just took a look at the xorg.conf which the Ubuntu 5.10 install
creates for this laptop, and it appears that the driver chosen is
correct, the "i810", but some settings for it must be wrong. Here is
the xorg.conf from Breezy, which is obviously an older version of X:

EndSection

[...]

I am experimenting a bit with the settings now, but trial & error is
not so efficient.
