Ah there is a trick to that bit. If you have some i810 stuff then XFree does
funnies if you have DRM enabled.

The following combination I know works

XFree 4.0 rpms from Red Hat (not 100% sure which 4.0 set they match sorry)
DRM disabled in the XF86Config.

On my i810 the DRM/flicker problem isnt present but I have seen other folks with
it and disabling the direct 3d stuff cured it.

2.2.18pre18 also supports the i810 audio reasonably well. For full UDMA ide you
want 2.4test or 2.2.18pre18 + ide patch
