I've got an old IBM ThinkPad 340CSE, installed Slackware 7.1 (well,
ZipSlack plus some selected packages) and would like to get X windows

The build in Cirrus GD6245 should support 640x480x8, but I can only get
it runnig at 320x200x4.

Any help, hints, links as to how to configure the X windows system would
be much appreciated.

FYI, a good place to check for running linux on ThinkPads is the ThinkWiki.
