X3500 no direct rendering

I've recompiled and reinstalled the graphics stack multiple times, 
both to normal /usr directories and to separate test directories, and 
it's entirely possible I've got something in the wrong place. I think
 I should start clean and try this again from scratch. Questions:

-I'm using the instructions, including git locations, at
*except* that I'm using xf86-video-intel instead
of xf86-video-intel they reference. Should that work and/or
is there a better approach?

-Those instructions set up the graphics stack in a separate 
directory for testing, which is a good idea for me given that
I'm having trouble getting this to work. However, if I do get
this to work - how do I change the instructions to get the
stack to install in it's normal/correct location? (When I used
./autogen without --prefix it seemed to install in /usr/local
which I don't think is right ...)

-If I want to "start clean", what should I remove to make sure
I don't have the wrong libraries, binaries, files, etc left over that 
would screw up my new install?

-Just to confirm - I have an Asus P5E-VM HDMI motherboard,
which has G35 chipset and X3500 GMA, running (otherwise)
stock Kubuntu 7.10. I'm assuming xf86-video-intel
*should work* with this - am I right?
