Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I want to clone my Radeon display to my DisplayLink display. The word "clone" does not appear in 'man xorg.conf'. (Neither does "projector").
The hardware is a Radeon HD3200 and a J-Tech Digital JTD USBHDMIA (DisplayLink device). I am able to set this up such that the DisplayLink can be placed Above or Below (etc) the Radeon. I am not able to configure the DisplayLink to clone the Radeon, which is what is desired. What happens with the configuration as outlined below is that the DisplayLink has focus and displays as expected, but the Radeon does not mimic/echo/clone the DisplayLink display. Neither is it possible to get focus to the Radeon display.
Although there are proprietary drivers for the Radeon HD3200, they HATE the DisplayLink, so the kernel (2.6.38.I_Forget) driver is used instead. If it matters, I use xfce4 on Slackware64 (current as of 27 June 2011).
What needs to be done to make the DisplayLink act like a projector, displaying the same thing as the Radeon display, and while the Radeon display has focus?
