intel845 g doesnot require a extra driver ,as XFree4.3 comes inbuilt with the driver for i845g,make sure that the proper modules are loaded ,the easy way to do that would be use vesa driver to start X windows,
(in the device section write vesa in driver line in the file /etc/X11/XF86Config)
now start X
and using the redhat config tool,use the proper driver
