Question getting Intel 845G working

Hi Guys

I Installed fedora 3 recently, and I've been trying to setup my VGA intel 845g which comes with the motherboard on board. that's where my pains starts to grow.

Fedora recognize the card as a 845 giving me the chance to wotk with it at 800X600 and thousands colors

so I went to Intel and I got the drivers from their website.
They have 2 kinds for linux
tared and rpm. when I tried to install either I get a similar error.

Compiling new agpgart module...
Compiling DRM module...

ERROR: Kernel modules did not compile

The DRI drivers can not be installed without the latest kernel modules.
Installation will be aborted. See the dri.log file for information on

So severals forums and guides I become aware
that I needed to install the RPM source which doesn't
come include in fedora.

so first I got the last kernel from the updates made by YUM
which is 2.6.11-1.27_FC3

and then I got the rpm source that matched this one

THenI installed it and and I made a rpm -qa | fgrep kernel
to see how the installation went.

wow surprise I got this


My first doubts started to come out , first I didn't see the rpm source listed like used to be in Redhat, second it seems that it's showing 2 kernel version, plus the kernel utils is a totally different version as well. oh Gosh this is getting harder.

So I tried to install the drivers in their both ways ( tared and rpm) anyways and I got the same error that I described at the beginning, I checked the DRI.log and thre is alot of errors like this

"/root/Desktop/dripkg/drm/drm_agpsupport.h: In function `gdg_agp_acquire':

/root/Desktop/dripkg/drm/drm_agpsupport.h:111: error: request for member `acquire' in something not a structure or union"

Here I am, wondering where the problem was , if the problem is in that
I have 2 kernel versions installed, or that the rpm source
it wasn't installed properly. or both combined or something
out of my knowledge (which is not pretty big as you can read).

If someone can give a hand may be i cam go to bed with my video card working properly, thanks for anyhelp
