Actually this is wrong. We didn't split out the intel drivers back out 
at that point it seems. I guess it was only did that later.

I'm trying to remember if there is was a problem with 2008.0 or not. It 
was caused by switching to the 2.x series IIRC and there were a few 
regressions with that.

If anyone knows when the below problem was fixed (e.g. in what version) 
that would be useful as I can then do a backport for you on 2008.0.

Failing a known fix for the problem above, you can also try installing 
the -i180 rpm from 2007.1 I think that should still work and not cause 
this problem due ot the fact it was still on the 1.7.x series IIRC.

You may have to download the RPM mandually and install with --oldpackage 
argument to rpm.
