problems with xfree86 and x11 in Cygwin on notebook

Dear all,

I have tried to install cygwin-x today on my notebook, but it failed 
unfortunately.  The installation process was ok, but I am not able to 
set a display resp. to initialize a x-server. I think that my graphic 
ship SIS 650 is the problem. But I don't know how to configure the X11 
enviroment of cygwin-xfree, so that the x-server will run and that I 
will be able to connect myself with my notebook to another Unix-server 
and to work with emacs or nedit on my laptop. The same installation on a 
PC with a more common graphic.ship was successful.

Does anyone have an idea, which file I have to configure and which 
settings I have to use, so that the X-server will work?

Thanks a lot and merry christmas to everyone.
