Graphics Card/Steam woes

Hey guys, first post, kinda new to debugging Mac. I've got a MacBook from about 2006 running Leopard. Trying to get Portal to run.
When booting Portal from Steam it gives me an error about video drivers.
As you can see in the picture, it seems like the computer is telling me that I don't have any Intel Video Drivers installed. I've scoured the net for drivers/information about how to install them, and have come up empty handed. So I come to you: How does one install video drivers in Mac?

The key is in the first sentence.
Your video hardware does not meet the minimum requirements.
Sorry, but new drivers, if there were any (and there aren't), are not going to help that card play any 3D games.
Minimum graphics for portal is the ATI x1600 or the nVidia 8xxx series cards.
With that card, you will definitely need to verify system requirements before any game purchase.I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
