I use an i810 at work running unstable (XFree86 4.0.2-1). It works
pretty seamlessly, provided you compile in the necessary kernel modules
(you need at least CONFIG_DRM_I810 enabled in the kernel configuration,
which gives you i810.o, and possibly CONFIG_AGP_I810 too - I can't quite
remember). Read /usr/share/doc/xserver-xfree86/README.i810, although I
suspect that might be a bit out of date.
If you want 3D acceleration (hey, who doesn't at work? :)), you need to
reserve some video memory with a VideoRam directive.
/usr/share/doc/xserver-xfree86/README.DRI.gz has the details.
