Intel 845G

I'm trying to install the intel 3d drivers but get the following errors

make -f Makefile.linux DRM_MODULES=gdg.ko modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/bryce/Desktop/dripkg/drm'
make -C /lib/modules/ SUBDIRS=`pwd` DRMSRCDIR=`pwd` modules
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/'
rm: cannot remove `/home/bryce/Desktop/dripkg/drm/.tmp_versions/CVS': Is a directory
make[2]: *** [crmodverdir] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernels/'
make[1]: *** [modules] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/bryce/Desktop/dripkg/drm'
make: *** [gdg.ko] Error 2

Why won't it install?

Are these from intel's website or something? Let me know how they work. I have that card and X/Debian have issues with it. Like some gl programs lock X up. I didn't even know there were separate 3d drivers.

What distro are you using? What are you using to build the module?
