Trouble with X 4.0.3 on IBM T22 (kernel 2.4.5)

I just bought an 800 MHz IBM T22 with 14.1" TFT and a S3 Savage IX
video chip. I have installed Debian testing on it with a custom 2.4.5
kernel with the XFS patch from SGI. Everything seems to work nicely
except X. I use "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86" to configure X, but
I get a very strange image on the screen when I run startx. It look
like it's black and white and there are a lot of vertical lines down
the screen. I'm trying to run it in 1024x768, but I have seen a lot of
people on net mention that they are using 1400x1050, but changeing my
X config file to match that didn't help a bit.
Can anyone help to get X up and running? 
It's very sad to have used a lot of money on a laptop to run Linux on and
then only text mode is working :-)
