problems with resolution and dual monitors


I'm currently running a Dell Inspiron 1000 Laptop with dual monitors (dualhead) with a spare lcd. The graphics card is integrated sis. Anyways, I've got everything working, dual monitors and all, but one of the monitors is 1024x768 and the other is 800x600. In the past, whenever I've wanted to change the resolution I did so in xorg.conf Screen sections, but I've tried that here with no success. This seems like it should be a simple problem to fix, but I can't find any information beyond changing the Display SubSection in the Screen Section.

btw sis1screen is the screen that should be 1024x768 but is 800x600

Xorg.conf:

Code:
