Another X problem

I successfully reinstalled Debian on my Thinkpad 365XD.  This time
I used the "Oficial Debian 1.3" CD's from LSL.  This worked fine with the Tecra
disks (which maybe should be renamed).  Thank you to all who have worked on
Debian (it was sure easier to install 1.3 on this laptop than 1.2 - back then I
had to install 1.1 and upgrade).  I got X working in 640x480 mode using the SVGA
server.  All was well with the world.

Once I got a PCMCIA modem and got this laptop "connected," I upgraded it to the
lastest in stable (this moved X from 3.2 to 3.3).  I cannot get X to work
correctly now.  When I "startx" I see this screen but it is very garbled with a
lot of horizontal lines and noise.  I tried to correct it with a new XF86Config,
but that did not help.  The only thing that I tried that worked was downgrading
X back to 3.2.  Is there a way that I can successfully use X 3.3 on my laptop?

Thanks in advance for any assistance,

Paul Rightley
