Redhat 6.1 installation on IBM Thinkpad 755cse

I have installed Redhat 6.1 on my thinkpad 755cse, but I am having a problem configuring X Windows.  I have played with the XF86Config file with the following results:

1) The X windows display is about 10 times larger than the screen and there is a half-inch horizontal area through the center of the screen where the display is garbled.

-or-

2) The display is appropriately sized, but everything is duplicated  3 or 4 times in different areas of the display (including the mouse pointer).

The screen is a 10.4" TFT Dualscan LCD panel. I'm relatively new to Linux and cannot figure out this problem.  Has anyone solved this problem on a similar Thinkpad? I am dying to see the configuration file of anyone that has.

Thanks. -Jason

You might have a much better chance with this is you use XF86Setup or Xconfigurator. If you don't have them installed, you can do so with: rpm -Uvh <filename>

Thanks, I was using Xconfigurator. I'll have to try XF86S.
