Graphics Fedora Core 5 845G HP COMPAQ D530 and D510


sorry all, this is copied from the hardware forum, didn't notice this one until after I posted!

Hi all, I recently was given an HP D530 Ultraslim and a Compaq D510 SFF and am trying to install Fedora Core 5 on them both, one for a general purpose computer and one as a server.

The problem I'm having is the graphics. using the i810 driver LSPCI says:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset integrated graphics Device (rev 01)

(If you need other lines let me know...I have to type them manually unfortunately!!)

Error on 800x600@16 is screens found, no usable configuration

I have looked on many sites about this problem but all the solutions require updating the BIOS and setting the video memory higher. I have tried the factory BIOS and latest BIOS with the same result and there is no option to set the graphics RAM.

Changing the video card os not an option on either machine (and neither should it have to be!)

Any help would be most appreciated, these are about as standard as a desktop gets as pretty much every business I've been to in the UK uses these or the Dell equivelant so I find it hard to believe that they are unsupported on Linux.

Cheers
Dave

Here I am way into November and still can't find suitable answers. It's preposterous, really. *Sigh*. This is so damn frustrating and the reason I cannot get any traction in building a thin-client Linux infrastructure here.
