Wide Screen + External Monitor Possible?

I've been Googling and futzing with xorg.conf for several months now,
to no avail...
Can anybody confirm/deny that it is possible to convince the i810/i915
driver to have a laptop wide-screen LCD and an external 19-inch with
"dual head" configuration, i.e., more screen real estate?
So far, the closest I can come is a very streak-y (vertical) clone of
the LCD onto the external.
And it's not even a usable clone, as it's impossible to read anything
when every 5th pixel column is missing.
Well, that's what it looks like, anyway. I dunno if it's technically
a column of actual pixels. And don't quote me on the every FIFTH
pixel, okay?... Could be 7th.
Can anybody even just tell me if I'm supposed to be dinking with
Xinerama, TwinView, or something entirely different?
I read something somewhere that Xorg could only do dual head if the
vertical or horizontal pixel count "matched" between the 2 monitors.
Is that really true, or just a myth?
The sheer volume of conflicting information out there, some of which
MUST be mis-information, is just overwhelming. :-v
Some people have a "gift" link here.
Know what I want?
I want you to buy a CD from some indie artist.
Yeah, I get a buck. So?
