Ubuntu Feisty Beta uses the appropriate driver *by default* for my Intel 855 video card on my laptop. However, the installation defaults to 1024x768 resolution, and doesn't offer the preferred 1280x768 resolution. A quick fix to this is to install 855resolution, which changes the resolution of an available vbios mode. This change is made at boot time. It would be good if distributions like Ubuntu detected this at installation time, and setup 855resolution accordingly.
