I almost did give up.
Google says the graphics hardware on the R31 is an
intel i830, which probably
doesn't support any advanced graphics.
My IBM has i845 which might not be all
that advanced either.

Try choosing IceWM from
the login screen instead
Until finding this thread, the idea that it
might be KDE over a more general X11 issue didn't cross my mind.
IceWM worked with no trouble.

Before doing this, I had tried several things, most
of which did not
work. I was able to use the xorg.conf.install
* If not specific to KDE, perhaps your hardware does
not support modesetting -
boot with kernel param 'nomodeset'
I found this might not be very
conclusive. According to 11.3 release notes
"On Intel without KMS the Xserver falls back to the fbdev driver" which
seemed to work for me anyway.
NB I blacklisted a bunch of intel chipsets from using
KDE's desktop effects
before 11.4 was released, but only the ones I know have problems.
I guess I have
another one for you. After doing the kwinrc thing you
described, I was able to run X11 with KDE4. my chipset is 845G
