LCD interfacing

While shopping for classic portables at a swap meet today, I found an
interesting non-classic device: an external flat-panel display. It
presents a classic problem, though: how do I interface with a device when
I have no docs and can't track down the manufacturer.

The thing is labeled "INFOBASE pro executive SYSTEM" and contains a pair
of amplified speakers and a Samsung LT133X1 13.3" 1024x768 TFT display (I
suspect it's a prototype). There's a 26-pin connector (I think it's
called AMP-style, similar to SCSI-2 connectors) and a three-pin power
connector. Any idea how I can make this thing go? I think I need an LCD
controller card, but I don't know where to find one or how to determine if
it can drive this display.

ObCC: I also brought home an HP 110, Tandy 600, Mac Portable, NEC PC-8300,
and TEC Data-Pad.
