I think I've read that most Intel chips don't work with OpenGL. In any case, mine certainly doesn't.

Though perhaps the easiest way is just to install Ubuntu 10.04 (it is very close to release; even if you install a recent release candidate it would be easy to update to final soon).
I'm using the latest intel driver that's available for my distro. There are newer ones available, but it looks like they're for 10.04, which I think I'll wait for until the official release. I tried the alpha release of 10.04 once, and everything just went horribly wrong lol.
