I've got dual monitor's working on my HP dv1000 laptop, with out
proprietary drivers.  Attached is an xorg.conf for rightof display for
the second monitor.  Uncomment the server flags option for Xinerama and
it works as well. [rightof = 2 desktops one to the rightof the other,
xinerama = one big, spanning desktop]. You'll need to change the
resolutions to suite your monitors.  My laptop has a widescreen.

I've tried the system menu tool, but it never worked for me, and it over
writes any changes you make by hand.
