Does anyone know how I might be able to install a graphics drivers for an older integrated chipset?

Specifically this one: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?ProductID=178&DwnldID=2702&lang=eng

It's for an old Pentium/Celeron PC, and only comes in a RPM package.

If all goes well . . . the attached "rpm2tgz" .PET should enable you to turn the RPM into a binary tarball; just run the "rpm2targz" command on the RPM from the command line in rxvt. If you then untar the tarball, verify that the structure of the resulting directory is what you would need for a .PET (i.e., it has subdirectories corresponding to the ones where the files should go, such as [directory]/usr/bin or some such path for a binary executable), run "dir2pet" on it to put in a bit of Puppy-specific information, and re-tar it, you should get an installable .PET by running "pet2tgz" on the tarball. If any of this is less than perfectly clear, or if it doesn't work as predicted, just ask questions.
