The driver for the Intel 915G is already included in Debian. It is
called "i810". If you use Debian stable (Sarge) you can run (as root)

dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

If you use testing (Etch) or unstable (Sid) the command is

dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

This will give you the same dialog as during installation. It should
allow you to select the "i810" driver and your desired screen
resolution(s). (There might be some more questions; just accept the
default when you are in doubt about the right answer.)

If you have any more questions, please use debian-user@lists.debian.org.
