display is not viewable

Description of problem:
After upgrading to the FC3.45 packages, the display came up with the graphics as a jumbled band in the top 15% of the screen. I tried running system-config-display from a console window (had to reboot to init 3), but that didn't work, either. I had to downgrade to the FC3-13 packages to get a functional display.
hwbrowser shows that I have the following video card:
Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-GJ/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device
Driver: Crd: Intel 845
If you need diagnostic info while the FC3-45 packages are installed, I can reinstall them to get more data. Just tell me what you might need.
BTW, once I got to init 5, I could not switch to a console window to do anything useful. I had to ssh in from a different machine in order to do anything useful.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install package
Actual Results: See description.
Intel 815 seems not to be effected by this bug. Tested on FC3 and FC4 with no
problems encountered on either version. I assume this breakage is for Intel 830
CC: since I have an Intel 865G card which is said to be broken. Waiting for fix.
