Arrow Fedora 9 Dell D630 Extended Desktop xorg.conf (2) 19" Flatscreens Docked

Environment:
Fedora 9 Linux version 2.6.25.6-55.fc9.i686 fully updated as of 20080702 from Fedora 9 and Fedora 9 updates repositories
Dell D630 with Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 chipset
Docked, Dell USB Mouse, Dell USB Keyboard
(2) 19" Flatscreens:
Dell 1907FP (Digital) plugged into VGA port (Left)
Dell 1901FP (Digital) plugged into DVI port (Right)
Resolution set at 1280x1024.
Virtual setting: Be sure to use double your horizontal resolution and use your vertical resolution.
For example, 1280x1024 would need "Virtual 2560 1024", as in mine below, near bottom of file.

Enjoy!

Always be sure to back up your original file.
Place the below in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file:

Re: Dell D630 Extended Desktop xorg.conf

For my Latitude D630, I was stuck in 1024x768 or less with the vesa driver.
To fix it I ONLY needed to do 1 thing.
REALLY IMPORTANT!!!
added
i915.modeset=1
to the /etc/grub.conf
(which is really /boot/grub/grub.conf
That is

the kernel line looked like
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.38.6-26.rc1.fc15.i686.PAE ro root=/dev/sda1 .....
.....
..... i915.modeset=1


I must now get networking to work



I originally also made an xorg.conf, but that turned out to be unnecessary
1. Created /etc/X11/xorg.conf
