Here is a brief description how I installed the Alpha_5 of Hardy on my X61 Tablet. I downloaded The alternate Version and installed as instructions said.

X

Edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and add to Section Screen

SubSection "Display"
	Virtual 3000 2250
EndSubSection

The Parameters behind Virtual must be bigger than all your Displays added together (3000 = 1400 + 1600) Now you can adust you settings with xrandr. e.g.:

xrandr --output LVDS --rotate left
xrandr --output LVDS --rotate normal
xrandr --output VGA --auto --right-of LVDS
…
