Cannot load module i810 when try to start gnome

I just installed fedora core 6. And I also selected the gnome desktop envirenoment in the installation, but when I type startx. It runs some stuff and then displays the error that it cannot load module i810, it doesnt excist.

How can I install or load this module in the text based version? I'm using yum to install stuff.
I also dont know how to connect to the web with the text based version. So dont ask me to download the file from the web hehe

I hope someone can help me.

Look on the installation media for like xorg-x11-drv-i810-<something>.rpm

If you have a connection (DSL or cable) to the Internet then you may have an Internet connection, so you could try; yum install xorg-x11-drv-i810

It might be a good idea (if you have the space) to create a directory named something like Fedora6 and place all the rpm packages from the installation media in this directory. Then using the createrepo tool make a local repo, from the directory type something like; createrepo /Fedoda6

Then as root create a local repo file in /etc/yum.repos.d named something like Fedora-Local.repo which reads like;

name=Fedora-$releasever - Media

If the installation media is the DVD then you can just use the create the Fedora-Local.repo file with the baseurl pointing to the DVD drive location instead.
