Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2003-07-03 01:47:53 EDT
Your video hardware, is Intel i845 onboard integrated video, which is not
supported by XFree86 4.1.0.  This hardware is also known to not work with
the VESA driver, which is indicative of video BIOS bugs, as the VESA driver
is entirely BIOS driven.

Intel i845 video hardware is supported currently only in Red Hat Linux 9, and
is not supported in Red Hat Enterprise Linux products.  The recommended
supported solution is to use a supported add-in video adaptor.
