Description Matt Domsch 2002-04-04 17:57:37 EST
Description of Problem:
Xconfigurator, versions 4.10.1-1 (Hampton beta 4) and (Hampton beta 2) provide 
the choice for an Intel i830 video chip, which then puts:

Section "Device"
   Identifier "Intel 830"
   Driver "i830"
   BoardName "Unknown"

There is no driver "i830".  It's "i810".  Changing this allows X to start on my 
Dell Latitude C400 in 1024x768x8bpp mode.  (higher modes not possible w/o BIOS 
and/or XFree support for stealing additional system RAM - google 
for "Liberating the Dell Latitude C400" for further details).
