Hi Evan,

I don't know if it works for nvidia cards (a quick search on Google tends to
answer yes but I'm not 100% sure) but with a radeon card I have to use the
MetaModes option in Xorg.conf.

The line

        Option "MetaModes" "1024x768+1280x960"

in the device section permits to have a cloned display of a 1280x960 virtual
desktop which is displayed in "real" 1024x768 on the fist port (the lcd)
and in 1280x960 on the second port (the dvi output).

My 2¢,
