How did you set up the ServerLayout specifically? I tried it with two
Screens and with two ServerLayouts, both seem to take only one of
the two Screen/Monitor configs i made ignoring the other one...

But I am glad to be able to switch CRT/LCD with Fn-F6. 
I couldn't find any documentation or HOWTO on this issue (XFree
+LCD+CRT on Notebooks)!!! Is there any?
