Intel i815 - opengl - - help!


i am quite a newbe though i've managed to get my nvidia geforce 3 card to work with Nividia's drivers. And managed to (sort of ) compile my own kernel.

I have just put mandrake linux 9.1 on my friends machine. Everything is o.k except that i cannot play opengl games.
He has an onboard intel i815 card.

I have looked on intel's web site but all i could find are drivers for older versions of xfree (3.4) .

It also mentions something about AGPgart which is meant to be downloaded from only i couldn't find it.

Has anybody got any suggestions??

thanks for your reply man.

I managed to sort it out anyway!

I iinstalled the latest mandrake 9.1 kernel and the newest version of xfree.

Then typed xfdrake whilst not in xwindows. Chose Vendor - intel - 815.

Now quake 3 works! yey!
