thinkpad xf86config

have recently acquired a used ibm thinkpad with no manual or other
documentation.  on the keyboard face it says "760ED" and on the
back "type 9547-U4G S/N 78-UYD73 96/10".  

i have rh5.2 installed, which runs fine with the text console, but
with startx i get a brief flicker and then a blank screen.

the startx message indicates a TFT display 800x600 with a cyber9385
chipset.  there seems to be nothing unusual in the message.

can anyone suggest any good modelines, or a sample XF86Config file
which might produce better results, or ... ?

tia, dan
