I'm going to work on this too once I get the alps lcd panel next week. If you do come up with the proper values I would appreciate it if you added them to the wiki.

Thanks Holly!

I do have pinouts and resolution at least, so that gives me some
chance. The link on the gumstix display page leads me here:
http://hubbard.engr.scu.edu/embedded/lcd/lfh8p4032b/lfh8p4032b.html

Im suprsied that when they made the page, they didnt list some of
those values, since they obivously are not in the datasheets provided.
If we do end up getting these values, Ill make sure to post them up on
the tikiwiki.
