Ok. Installed it, xserver-xfree86 version 4.2.0 pre1v2 and 
apparently the i810 driver provides support for the i830 chipset...
and it has very little memory as it apparently uses the system memory...
at least according to the note during dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

Btw, what X resolution should I choose for a labtop... I was able to get
it working with the i810 chipset at 8 bit colour not 24 bit...at 1024x768
Does it even make sense to vertical and horizontal frequencies on lcd screen?
The screen looks a little uneven, especially the kde startup window...
