Question intel 82801e graphics control and x help

I have the latest debian release. (At least that I am aware of) I was able to get it installed quite easily. I seem to not have x configured correctly for my graphics controller. I have the "Intel 82801e graphics controller". (may just need driver?)

Any help here would be greatly appreciated! Thanx.

I found something a little more specific for my driver at the adf listed has info on the necessity to change the kernel as iit does not have on board video memory. This also advises to get more version specific info as to the linux distribution.
So I am on myu way but guaranteed to have more questions.
