I am running Karmic, fully updated, on a Dell Dimension 2300 with the indicated Intel card see below result of lspci -vvnn command:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device [8086:2562] (rev 01)

I have the following version of compiz installed (partial output of aptitude show):
Package: compiz
State: installed
Automatically installed: no
Version: 1:0.8.3+git20090917-0ubuntu2
and the following version of the intel driver package:
Package: xserver-xorg-video-intel
State: installed
Automatically installed: no
Version: 2:2.8.1-1ubuntu1

I can confirm that the intel driver no longer is blacklisted in compiz since the line has been commented out, see below:
# blacklist based on the pci ids
# See for details
#T=" 1002:5954 1002:5854 1002:5955" # ati rs480
#T="$T 1002:4153" # ATI Rv350
#T="$T 8086:2982 8086:2992 8086:29a2 8086:2a02 8086:2a12" # intel 965
#T="$T 8086:2a02 " # Intel GM965
#T="$T 8086:3577 8086:2562 " # Intel 830MG, 845G (LP: #259385)

However, starting compiz, regardless whether I do this using System --> Preferences --> Appearance or by using the compiz-fusion icon results in a desktop without panels and a free of mouse and keyboard. Also adding the previously suggested option (AccelMethod XAA) to xorg.conf does not help and also results in the freeze.
