Intel Extreme Graphics problem

Hello again... i got a problem with my intel extreme graphics 2 card. i got debian 2.2.something (sorry, newbie!) and my kde is not loading due to an error loading the i810 driver. the bottom line says that it cant find the hardware pcidevice at PCI:0:2:1. but itz there!!!!!!! well i tried installing the driver given by but with no success. i also had newer kernels running: same result.
please.... what can i do to get the graphic card working? i got a hp pavilion ze4900 series, i already searched at linuxquestions but the results couldn't make me smarter!!!!!
this might be a dumb question, but are there different/niewer versions of XFree86? what is please anyone help...
thx in advanced

From what I understand, one of the main differences is the license and the degree of development (xorg seems to do better in both areas). I think you will find a lot of information via google. Most linux distro's (recent versions) have allready switched to
In my experience there is little difference in configuration, but I would recommend using xorg.
Also, it wouldn't hurt to give more information: how did you configure X to begin with? Have you read the logs? What exactly have you tried?
And debian 2.2.something may not be the best system to start with if you are a new to GNU/Linux. Many newbies (including myself) find distros like Fedora, SuSE and Mandrake alot easier to begin with. Just my opinion though, so feel xfree to ignore me

perhaps you are right!!! all this linux stuff bothers me over the last 3-4 weeks with no pos result. thatsway i'm just burning the fedora dvd. i'll start off with that (if it works :-) ) and when i feel more compftable with linux i'll try the debian dest again.
so thx for your thread. you gave my thoughts the final push (i dont know how to say it in english!!!!!:-) )
