0.4 working on i855gm (IBM Thinkpad X40)

    thanks a lot, got it working on my X40.

    what i haven't achieved yet is exporting a resolution bigger than the one i use on the laptop. i don't know if this is even possible ...

    For easy use open up your /root/.bashrc and add

    function dualhead
             echo $1
             cd ~/i855crt-0.4
             ./i855crt swcursor overlaycrt on 1024x768@$1
             cd -

    source your new .bashrc:

    source /root/.bashrc

    and use your new function dualhead:

    dualhead Hz

    replace Hz with your desired refresh rate on the external monitor/beamer. if you don't have i855crt-0.4 placed in /root/ you must change the line

    cd ~/i855crt-0.4
