Wolfgang Lawrenz was kind enough to share this discovery with me and I hope
he is OK with me posting it. I would have never discovered this on my own.
I just wish we knew how to modify the XFree driver to make this extra Fn+F7
step unnecessary. Great news in any case; it really works! --Burt

>I am running a redhat 6.1 on a TP760EL with a 800x600 DSTN XFree is 3.3.5
>The DSTN works with X with every pixel clock speed I tried (30 - 60 range)
>Modeline "800x600" 36 800 844 916 1024 600 601 603 625
>(due to sometimes connected external monitor)

>Important thing is, to press Fn+F7 if DSTN doesn't sync after X start.
>( on my system shows 1 - 2 yellow lines without sync)
