have a look at:


It says you'll need X 4.3, but it also said this to my i845G VGA, 
and yet it works fine on my SID:

charlie@marvin:~$ X -version 2>&1 | grep Version
XFree86 Version (Debian 4.2.1-11 20030829103906 james@nocrew.org) / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6600)

charlie@marvin:~$ lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corp. 82845G/GL [Brookdale-G] Chipset Integrated Graphics Device (rev 01)

You may need a newer kernel (2.4.22 works fine for me) to get your 
agpgart working. At compiletime set the agpgart and the i8xx drivers to
be compiled in module.

HTH, but do not hesitate to ask, if that's not enough info.
