I am running Fedora Core 1 with the 2.4.22-1.2129.nptl kernel on my Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop. The built in graphics is the Intel 845GL. X fails to start if I set the default depth in the XF86Config file to 24 bit. If I set it to 16 the resolution displayed is 640x480. If I set the default depth to 8 then the resolution is 1024x768. I've also tried the Vesa driver. I know for a fact that the monitor and graphics support 1024x768 at 32 bit. In my bios it says there is 1MB of video memory. What do I have to do to get my graphics at 1024x768 at 24 bit? Thanks in advance. Here is part of my XF86Config file:

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor()"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "Dell 1024x768 Laptop Display Panel"

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard()"
Driver "i810"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "Intel 845"
VideoRam 16834 #I added this in an attempt to fix it but the result is the same

Section "Screen"

Monitor "Monitor()"
DefaultDepth 8
SubSection "Display"
