We are/were at one point. :)

Yeah, it will be different.  You may want to check
your BIOS to be sure it's on the right irq, and not
sitting with a com port(irq 3 is com2 by default),
maybe disabling com2 might help too. (not sure if that
will help, but it can't hurt)

I'm sorry, I forgot the Screen section to the
XF86Config... maybe you have DefaultDepth 8 set... 

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen 1"
        Device  "i810"
        Monitor "monitor0"
        DefaultDepth 24

It's not, for the most part,  color depth is driven
the XF86Config,(afaik, that's it, unless your monitor
can't handle the H and V synch rates, make sure you
check on that, as I'm not sure),  make sure you've
read this chapter of the handbook,
as well as, 
which has a section on the i810 chipset at the bottom.

Yes, of course.

These are kernel options, LDT  #allow user-level
control of i386 ldt (which is needed for X afaik) and 
agp # AGP GART support is i810 extention, afaik).  
If you haven't compiled a kernel with those options, 
I think LDT is in GENERIC,(or loaded the agp.ko
module)  you're going to have to.  


The handbook entry on compiling the kernel.

I'm sure it helps. :)

Not a problem, let's make sure this stays on the list,
 so others that have similar issues can use(if it
helps) the info here.
