RedHat on Toshiba Laptop 740CDT

Do you have any tips on configuring the Xwindows side (Xfree86 or MetroX) to work with the Toshiba Laptop 740CDT.  I am using RedHat 4.2.  Specifically, 1) What display/monitor should I select, 2) What pointing device should I select, 3) how should I configure the PCMCIA card? (3COM model 3C562D-TP, 33K modem + 10Base-T).
At this time, I have been selecting different configurations to see what will work and I still haven't hit it.  When I type "startx" from the command line I get a blank screen (black).  I have used the control + alt + backspace to try to get out of this (I am assuming that it is in Xwindows but can't display anything), but it doesn't do anything.  I have to restart the system.

Any advice would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks
