Dual monitor setup FC8

I have a Dell Laptop 640m. I have a Sony SDM-HS74 LCD attached on the
VGA port of my computer. It kind of works ok but I have two questions:

1. If I maximize a window on the Sony screen (1280x1024) I only get
the height of the Dell screen (800) with the bottom part of the screen
undused. The toolbar however is still at the very bottom of the LCD

2. I would like to get dual head setup, but I really can't seem to get
it to work. I either get X-server errors and have to revert or I get
no effect at all, i.e. two mirrored displays.

Here's the output of xrandr -q

Thanks for any hints.
