I thought XFree86 4.3.x i810(4) had a VideoRam option?

By default 8 Please refer to XF86Config(5) for general
configuration details. This section only covers configuration
details specific to this driver. The Intel 8xx family of
integrated graphics chipsets has a unified mem- ory
architecture and uses system memory for video ram. By default 8
Megabytes of system memory are used for graphics. For the 830M and
later, the default is 8 Megabytes when DRI is not enabled and 32
Megabytes with DRI is enabled. This amount may be changed with the
VideoRam entry in the config file Device section. It may be set to any
reasonable value up to 64MB for older chipsets or 128MB for newer
chipets. Note that increasing this value will reduce the amount of
system memory available for other applications. "
