This link just points to the support page not to any specific drivers. Following the 845 chipset line eventually leads to a page stating this
In general, many Linux* distributions already include Intel® graphics drivers. If you are looking to update your driver, Intel recommends checking on availability and obtaining precompiled driver packages from your Linux distribution vendor or computer manufacturer. Support for these drivers will be through your Linux distribution vendor or computer manufacturer.

The conclusion is that Intel does not provide graphics drivers for linux direct to end-users.

Linux is not Windows and does not work in the same way. You will find most manufacturers do not provide drivers for linux which is why hardware support can sometimes be tricky. I'm sorry but I am not able to assist you further.
