Suse 9 on Dell Latitude D800

i am trying to install Suse 9 on a Dell Latitude D800 laptop.
The "problem" is that this laptop has a wxga 15.4 '' display which supports a max resolution of 1280x800. It seems almost impossible to get X running on it. I have found some example XF86Config's which should work on this laptop but doesn't. While trying to set up the display at a resolution of 1024x768 the screen doesnt fill the hole display. An other strange behavior occurs when changing the console from tty7 (X) to tty2 or anything else. The screen starts flickering. The refresh rate is 60hz as it should be. the terminal screen resolution is 1024x768 (i am not quit sure ....)

Has anyone some experience with this laptop in conjunction whit linux ???
