vedio card choice

I am trying to configure the x-window-system.
My OS is debian.
I use the xf86config and when I reach the vedio card choice section.
I don't know which one I should choose.
My vedio card is "Intel(R) 82845G /GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics Controller" with 64M memory which I found from Windows control panel.
And I can't find one which match my card.
I choose a Generic VGA compatible but when I use startx to start, it told me no screens found.
what should I do.
thank you
