Got that one, and the image I posted is using that setting.  Just for 
fun I changed 0 to 1 and 2 and gave it a whirl, but it's completely 
unplayable -- whole buildings don't appear, and the top and bottom half 
of my character don't meet up.

I've already decided that, unless you get your wish, my next laptop will 
have an nvidia in it.

Thanks to everyone for your help.  If anyone has any more suggestions of 
things to try, I'm all ears!
