My video card is also intel. At first I just used the default installation config. Then, I used Xorg -configure which created a xorg.conf.new file in /root.
I edited this and made very modifications. The relevant sections is:
### Available Driver options are:-
### Values: <i>: integer, <f>: float, <bool>: "True"/"False",
### <string>: "String", <freq>: "<f> Hz/kHz/MHz"
### [arg]: arg optional
#Option "NoAccel" # [<bool>]
#Option "SWcursor" # [<bool>]
#Option "ColorKey" # <i>
#Option "CacheLines" # <i>
#Option "Dac6Bit" # [<bool>]
Option "DRI" "True" # [<bool>]
#Option "NoDDC" # [<bool>]
#Option "ShowCache" # [<bool>]
#Option "XvMCSurfaces" # <i>
#Option "PageFlip" # [<bool>]
VendorName "Intel Corporation"
BoardName "4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller"
Also, near to the top of the file, there is module section. I have this:
Naturally, you can add and remove the things you don't want or need in this file. To use the new file for X, rename it (mv(1)) to /etc/X11/xorg.conf .
I think that should, I hope, do it for you.
Good luck and I hope that helps you a bit.
Best wishes, Jamie
