One solution that will hit you in head is..
You should download the drivers from intel Website.( i know coz i have same Chipset[B])

After downloading and installing drivers your X will work like cake.

The other solution is:
Upgrade to Redhat-9,Fedora-Core1 or 2 or anything new than Redhat-8.
In Redhat-8.0 your sound card will also not work..so you might have to download drivers for that also.([I]And don't tell us that you could not find drivers on Intel site
)

The solution is actually RTFM but i will tell you to read the README file after unzipping the archieve. smile.gif
