I've got a vaio f-250 with that chip in it and I use xf86config to create an
XF86Config file for it.

svga works like a charm.  I haven't tried Framebuffer but I'd love to know your
experience with it.

hsync= 31.5-48.5
vsync= 60

I then edit the XF86Config file.  Delete any modes that aren't "1024x768" and
also any screen definitions that aren't "1024x768".  Because of the way an
LCD works these aren't variable so you can't use the other modes (at least
I can't) and they tend to mess things up.

good luck,
