Hi, has anyone been able to get an external monitor to work on an IBM
T40p (might be the same as T40 or T41)? I'm running Redhat 9. I'm also
running the commerical ATI video driver and have tried to configure
for dual monitor display. When using x86config-4 file below in either
the "DualScreen" or "Clone" ServerLayouts I get a "fatal error monitor
not found" on the second screen. Any suggestions? Ideally I'd like to
beable to switch this on the fly (like xrandr allows me to change res
on the fly) without restarting X. Any suggestions?

thanks,
-Sep
