Question How I put tv-out work? (Laptop with S3 Twister)

Computer is Compaq Presario 722ea (laptop). Graphic card is S3 Graphics Twister K Compaq.
How I put tv-out working under linux? I tested it Suse 9.1 and Mandrake 10.0. (Just moment I don't have any distro. ) Both distros detect card right. But i didn't no what to do.

In windows XP
A) press keyboard FN+F3
B) properties -> display -> advanced -> S3display -> cross TV
and it's fine.

Is there some distro that I can do it just easy. (OK, it's don't need _that_ easy if there are (good) helps). This will be the radical element that what distro I will be use.

thanks a lot.

Does closing the lid of the laptop while connected work? On my compaq the Fn+f4 doesn't work, never has. All the other functions+f5-10 work just not the f4 for somereason. You may have to add somethings to your xorg file.
