Intel 945 Recognition

Are there any disros that would recognise the Intel 945GM series graphics and run at 1280 x 800 on a laptop without having to try use 915resolution?

Nothing about my model on there. Everything works out of the box in Ubuntu and Pardus (only 2 I have tried) execpt the widescreen resolution.

Not to worry though, I am going to try a 915resolution hack later
