I am running a laptop from Acer with a intel graphic card (and I am
using intel as driver)
I set the display as LCD 1280x800
In the available resolutions I find only 1024x768, 800x600 and 640x480.
My Xorg file is:

# Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "single head configuration"
	Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Section "InputDevice"

# keyboard added by rhpxl
	Identifier  "Keyboard0"
	Driver      "kbd"
	Option	    "XkbModel" "pc105"
	Option	    "XkbLayout" "it"

Section "Monitor"
	Identifier   "Monitor0"
	ModelName    "LCD Panel 1280x800"
	HorizSync    31.5 - 50.0
	VertRefresh  56.0 - 65.0
	Option	    "dpms"

Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Videocard0"
	Driver      "intel"

Section "Screen"
	Identifier "Screen0"
	Device     "Videocard0"
	Monitor    "Monitor0"
	DefaultDepth     24
	SubSection "Display"
		Viewport   0 0
		Depth     24

Any way display works fine....
I tried aldo to install a second external video, as you can see from
conf file: I am confused, as I understand that you can choose only one
resolution if you connect a second monitor to the available VGA
connector.Is it true???
