xorg.conf problems with Gentoo on HP Pavilion zv6000

I recently purchased an HP Pavilion zv6000 notebook.

I've installed the newest version of Gentoo with the 2.6.12 kernel. I emerged xorg-x11 and have had alot of trouble getting my xorg.conf setup.

I've used Xorg -configure & xorgconfig, but I get the same error from both .conf files they create.

What I get is :

(EE) No Devices detected.

Fatal Server error:
no screens found

I was wondering if anyone else had the same notebook and had a working X server that they'd be willing to post their xorg.conf for me.

I've heard Fedora Core 4 installs on the machine extremely well, but I've been running Core 2 on my desktop and I'd really like to use a more advanced distro on this machine.

Thanks in advance,
