[lug] XFree86 3.3.6 and i810 chip set

Does anyone know what I need to do to get XFree86 3.3.6 talking to this 
video chip set? The docs on the XFree86 site indicate that it's 
supported but  not enabled by default because it requires a kernel 
module, which is supposed to be distributed with the driver. But it 
doesn't seem to provide instructions on how to enable it. (And I'm not 
entirely sure the pieces are included in the KRUD distribution. )

Xconfigurator recognizes the chip set, but can't install a working 
config. Do I just need to do an insmod of the agpgart.o module and then 
rerun Xconfigurator?

The Intel website has the driver and kernel module for XFree86 3.3.5, 
but the instructions that go with them don't seem quite relevant in the 
3.3.6 context. 

Thanks for any advice...
