Help! Install Intel GMA500 driver on a Puppy USB

I have a Clarion MiND running an Intel Atom 800Mhz w/ Intel GMA500 at 800x480px (same hardware spec as Gigabyte M528, Moblin Core). I tried to run PuppyLinux USB and I was unable to start x because GMA500 is not on the distribution. xorgconf does not include the driver. Intel has recently released the linux driver of GMA500. FTP is not working.

How can transfer the driver to the /root? Puppy root is inside the .sfs file. How can I install the driver to xconf?

Thanks. Greatly appreciated!

Intel GMA500 Linux Drivers:

Intel suggested to use the following command to install the driver:
dpkg -i --force-overwrite *.deb dev/*.deb

Going to download it and give it a try. I did try mindbuntu @ The nMind LITE 0.5a works ok.
