    the main thing is to get your h/v rates correct.
    if you are using an LCD these won't be as high as CRTs
    Here are the rates which work OK for my laptop:
    HorizSync 31.5-48.5
    VertRefresh 50-70

    These were standard options on installationl

    Installing Linux on laptops

    Installing linux on laptops can be very trying. Its because their hardware is very proprietary. Be very careful playing with LCD refresh rates as they can screw up your LCD if their set too high. You might want to try the latest SUSE distro. ( I believe its 9.2) Its supposed to have the very best laptop hardware support.
