Question Yellow component video out

I'm trying to get a laptop with Debian unstable to display 'out' the yellow component video out.

This particular laptop also has a VGA out on the back and it does do dual display in WinXP.

I thought I was on the right track but maybe not... Is the yellow component output not controlled by a dual head configuration of xorg?

More tinkering and found my own resolution... it was all in the wire. I now get signal to the 'out'. Now I just need to tweak my xorg.conf to a usable resolution on the 2nd screen. Thanks for looking!
