Dual Monitor display???????HELP
I posted this message couple times I will post it again, maybe somebody can help me out.
I can get my laptop to have a desktop spanned over the built-in lcd and the additional monitor hook to the svga output.
It is a laptop Toshiba with a Ati Rage Pro LT and runs MAndrake 9.0
Searching the net I found how-tos only for dual head video cards or 2 videocards settings (not my case). :-(
This is what lspci lists :

I tried all the device combinations with XConfig-4, but I ussually get an error message saying that it can not assign 2 devices to the same hardware.
Does "ati" driver supports spanned desktops ? Do I have to add some secret "options" ?
