The technical data-sheets for the IBM Thinkpad 600x report the graphics acceleration chip as being a NeoMagic MagicGraph256ZX.

The XFree86 3.3.6 servers report support for similar but not exactly the same chipsets (up to 256AZ) which _may_ work
http://www.xfree86.org/3.3.6/neo1.html#1  The reported working laptops include the ThinkPad600 (not the 600x):

You would use the SVGA server with the neomagic driver.

There is at least the same support with XF86 4.0,

 but the details are not filled in on the online manpages yet:

 so it may be even better than 3.3.6
