dual display from laptop in suse 10 w/ intel 855 chipset


I am running suse 10 on my laptop, which is a gateway 4542GP, with an intel 855 video chip. I would like to rig a dual display, but I'm not sure how to rig my xorg.conf in order to do so. Right now, if I look up my Samsung Syncmaster 930b to the vga port on my laptop, I get a cloned display where the laptop is the primary display; whenever I play a video, the video is displayed on the laptop and a blue screen gets shown on the monitor. Here is my current xorg.conf:
