That’s really weird that SLED 10 isn’t recognizing it. I have a T61 that I just got a couple months ago. It had SLED 10 on it and it was defaulted to the right resolution. Unfortunately, I don’t have SLED anymore, so I can’t help you much. But, if you are going to openSUSE 11, you’ll have no problem. I have openSUSE 11 and everything works good.
