Question Enable extended desktop in Fedora 10(Cambridge) kernel version

Hi guys, i have the following VGA chip on my toshiba laptop :Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller (rev 03).

The output for my xorg.conf file is as follows

# Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "single head configuration"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Section "InputDevice"

# keyboard added by rhpxl
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "kbd"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105+inet"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
ModelName "LCD Panel 1024x768"
HorizSync 31.5 - 48.0
VertRefresh 56.0 - 65.0
Option "dpms"

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "intel"


Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24

I am trying to have an extended desktop using a second 19inch IBM monitor model type 9497 but I have already installed the display control snap-in using

# yum install system-config-display
It is detecting the other monitor but it is duplicating the laptop screen to the 19inch instead of extending the desktop
