Angry Dell Optiplex GX260

I'm trying to configure RH 7.3 to use the built in (82845G) graphics chipset on my Optiplex GX260; the chipset isn't one of the options (because newer than the linux version?!) - anyone got any good ideas/workarounds?

Cheers, Dan.

Go into the bios set the video ram at 8megs.
Run Xconfigurator, set the video card type as Vesa
Set the ram to 8meg and no clock.
select the resoultions you want and it should work. I have a custom app that needs 800X600 at 16bit color is it works for me.
