[kde-linux] Video switch on Dell D620 laptop

        Hello , 

 My brand new Dell Latitude D620 laptop runs under SL4 and KDE 3.3 .
 When  it's connected to a videoprojector, and depressing Fn + F8 to
 enable the video out, the monitor is switched off and the videoprojector
 works fine . Depressing once more Fn + F8 switches off the projector
 and restarts my monitor . 
 I can't get  both the monitor and the video out signal at the same time . 
 The Fn + F8 acts as a two-state switches instead of a three-state one 
 as I expected. 
 I believe this is a matter of properly setting xorg.conf . 
 The video card driver is   : VESA  driver (generic) 
 Does anyone have a hint to solve this problem ?

     Thanks in advance ... Johann
