[CentOS] DisplayPort output with intel graphics driver?

We've installed CentOS 5.5 on a "mini PC" with an onboard Intel graphics 
chip, which has both "VGA" and DisplayPort output. This works reasonably 
well, except that I'd like to connect the monitor to the DisplayPort, 
and I only seem to get a signal on the VGA connector. This is the case 
even if I boot with the DisplayPort (only) connected, in which case 
console output during boot goes to the DisplayPort, but the graphical 
output does not. On the other hand, . DisplayPort display did work when 
booting from a "live" Ubuntu CD.

Is there anything I can do to get the correct display setup? Note that 
the driver used is "intel", not "i810".
