    Thank you very much.

    I've got the 855GM chipset here on my Dell D400 laptop, and can confirm that adding i915.modeset=1 to the kernel options allows 2.6.32-21 to boot.

    I made the changes permanent by editing grub:

    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/default/grub
    Added i915.modeset=1 as below:

    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash i915.modeset=1"

    Saved the changes, and updated grub using:

    Code:
    sudo update-grub
    Not ideal, but it works.

    Just hope they sort this one out in the final version.
