R51 1858-69G [Problem with Video drivers on Fedora (i810)]

The Problem.


As you can see lspci says that i have a Intel 91x installed (what specific card i dont know, ideers?)
Im running fedora core 3 and i use xfce as enviroment, my problem is that Fedora wount recognice the graphic card, and i would really like the drivers running so i can run 3d applications/games etc, and play my dvd movies.
But when i alter the driver option in xorg.conf file to i810 as they say i sould on - thinkwiki org

and i reboot my machine to test if X will accept it, it just keeps restarting X and after 3 times asks me if i feel like to reconfigure.

I have been googleing around and found out that theres diffrent versions of the r52, some running with ATI Radeon and some with Intel Express Graphic processor.


I really feel like iv tried everything, but i know that im not advanced enough to decide that its the OS or the device or something else.

If you think some information is missing please feel free to ask and i will do my best to supply you with it, and if posible a guide on how to access the information if its advanced


I hope iv statet my problem in a okay way.
Best wishes.

Hello,

Same problem I posted several weeks ago. No solution yet. I've been trying to solve this problem since November 2006 to no avail.

If you were able to solve this, please also help me.
