I have the same chipset in this laptop, I just installed bzflag and it ran flawlessly with default settings. The only difference that I know of in our setups is I am using the newer "intel" driver instead of "i810".
i personally suggest to install Pclinux or Sabayon to get the best video performances
the 945gm in a Philips notebook works perfectly for me with Pclinux 2007 and Sabayon 3.4,in Suse it is slower and has worse performances with the new intel driver,i had to edit xorg to use the older intel and anyway it still worked worse than in Pclinux or Sabayon ,in Mandriva and Fedora works better then suse but not as good as Pclinux..so it's a problem related also to how the distro manages the video driver.
i personally suggest to install Pclinux or Sabayon to get the best video performances possible,now i use it with Pclinux and works perfectly !
P.S.:the biggest onboard video ram possible is 224-i know it's a strange number-and not 128 mb
