Thanks to your help, I managed to get it working. This is the first time 
I have a multi-monitor-setup running under Linux with the correct 
parameters (refresh rate) - thank you very much! Btw. I need not 
restrict to 16 bpp, 24 bpp seems to work well.

What is left is being able to define a primary display. Currently, Gnome 
panels are stuck to the external display and they won't drag'n'drop to 
the internal LCD. Somewhere I read that you are picking the biggest 
screen for primary - this is not desired in every case. However, I am 
already very happy with what I've got now. If you happen to need some 
testing, would you let me know?

I will be heading over to try and get some OpenGL working...
