This isn't really the place to ask when a particular distro may have
better display support for the intel driver.  That's a question to
direct at the distro people.

That being said, the current prerelease versions of the xserver and
intel video driver include proper modesetting support.  No
915resolution BIOS hacks required.  I've also got a i845 chipset and
I'm running it with no problems here (and enabling/disabling monitors
on the fly, WOO!).  If you're feeling adventurous, you can compile it
yourself and have it working now.
