Fujitsu P1610 Graphics Card -- Intel 945GM

By default, widescreen resolutions are not available with the `intel' driver after installation! The solution is change the `vga=0x317' option in the GRUB boot settings to `vga=normal' or just to leave the vga option blank.

I did not have a widescreen login screen with the next boot-up, but after login I had a 1280x768 KDE 3.5 (or 4.1) desktop.
