I forgot to mention, that I disabled the option dri in the xorg.conf.
What does /var/log/Xorg.0.log tell? For comparison you find my xorg.conf
attached. The external display just works for the x-console. It does
not work for the text console.

Otherwise it might be that there is something broken in your kernel
version. I never tried it with kernel-2.6.12. But it works fine for me
with kernel-2.6.12-rc4 and kernel-2.6.13.2.

Good luck!

Peter
