modesetting not working in f15 kernel with intel video card

xorg with nomodeset
Description of problem:
attempting to boot f15 on intel 82852/855GM video card, fails both in text mode and graphics mode.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# uname -r
# lspci -nn | grep -i vga
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device [8086:3582] (rev 02)
# lsmod | grep -i video
video 10797 1 i915
# rpm -qa | grep -i intel
Steps to Reproduce:
text mode is a noisy mix between a huge vertical cursor and other random noises. graphics mode (gdm) is a black screen with a arrow mouse cursor moving fine, and a locked keyboard.
if i boot with nomodeset, text mode is ok, gdm displays and works.
the output above is from the system booted with nomodeset.
attempts to boot with kms ends in a system without network connectivity because network manager fails to stay alive during boot. (and f it would be alive, it would fail to connect, i believe).
the system is thinkpad x40, i can not send smolt profile because smolt is broken.

xorg with kms (?)

xorg with kms and some more parameters at kernel boot line
added drm.debug=14 log_buf_len=16M to kernel boot line
Can we get also /var/log/messages from the second setup (drm.debug and log_buf_len). thanks!

as expected, i sent it after booting with nomodeset :)
Thanks. ajax, there are a couple of boots in the log without nomodeset, so the necessary info is there.
