Smile Frame buffer driver for intel 810 chipset..

Have a look at the following FAQ in Intel web site.

Does the vesafb frame-buffer module work on the Intel 810 and Intel 815 Chipset Families?

No. The vesafb module can only make use of linear VESA modes. The Intel 810 and Intel 815 chipset families use banked modes and therefore, cannot boot into a frame-buffer. It would be possible to add banked mode support to the vesafb driver, but as of yet there are no plans to do so. The vga 16 color framebuffer available in recent Linux kernels does function properly and can be used in place of the vesafb framebuffer.

So where can i find the vga 16 color framebuffer driver ? How i shall invoke the same? I want the frame buffer driver which is suitable for intel 810 chipset.

it would be with a
modprobe modulename,
but i don't know the name of the module.
do a
find /lib -name "*i810*" -print and
see if that turns up anything
