Intel 82865G can't work!!!!

I have Dell optiplex GX270 with Intel 82865G. I can't make video work. I followed the installation instruction of intel, but the compilation did not succeed. I tried to copy i830.o and agpgart.o to /etc/modules/.../drivers/video. But still can't start X windows.

Do I have to buy a new graphic card? Is there anybody can help me?



ps. I am using redhat 9

Another Thread has a possible solution

There is another thread titled "Intel 865G integrated graphics and XFree 4.3" that has a possible solution. It requires going back 1 or 2 revisions of your BIOS. (downgrading). I have a GX270 with the A03 BIOS and am having the same problem. Dell, however, seems to have removed references to the previous BIOS' from their website. About half-way down the thread is a link to the A01 version of the BIOS on DELL's Web Site, so the A02 might still be there, just not displayed when you search for downloads. I hope this helps you.
