Re: X etc. with Debian on Vaio F340

I would appreciate any advice on getting X etc. to work with my 
Sony Vaio F340.  It has the NeoMagic NM2200 Chipset.  

When I type startx I get a blank, grainy screen, and nothing else
happens.   The trackpad does move the pointer, however.  

During installation I chose the twm window manager for no apparent reason;
I think it was given as the default, but I would be open to changing it.
I chose the "simple" option for selecting packages and selected everything
associated with Gnome.
