Dual monitor configuration with ATI Mobility 9000.


I've got a Dell D600 that I've been trying to get working with my flat panel monitor. I'm running the new ATI fglrx driver and no matter what I do I can't get a big desktop. Here's my hardware/software information:

Hardware:
Dell D600
1.6thz pentium m
ATI Radeon V250Lf (Radeon 9000 Mobility)
docking station
Dell FP1800 (18" dell flat panel LCD) (non-dvi)

Software:
Suse 9.0
XFree86 4.3.1
Tried the 'radeon' driver and the new 'fglrx' driver

Whenver I select "verticle spanned desktop" in the ATI control panel it says that I need to restart X to see changes. BUT... XF86Config is *never* changed by the ATI control panel.

In windows my laptop display runs at 1400X1050 and the flat panel runs at 1280X1024. Which is basically what I want Linux to do. Can someone help me with my headache? :-D

Right now, both displays are cloned, but the desktop on the 18" flat panel is too big for it.

I've tried modifying my config by creating two cards and then two monitors and editing accordingly. I can't get it to work!!!

Here's my current XF86Config and below it is with the dual config I've tried:
