It will work. And if You want to have different resolution with external monitor, just set the resolution with SaX2, and change it with cntr-alt-plus when You are running the external monitor.

I am running SuSE 7.3 on a Dell Inspiron 3500 laptop, and these
computers will toggle between its own monitor and an external one when
you press FN + F8. I have done that when it was running Windows. Would
I be inviting disaster to try it running Linux? When I installed Linux,
I set the screen for an LCD screen. Will this affect the external
screen. Will there be a momentarily satisfying, yet ultimately
dispiriting explosion or anything if I try it?



Okay. Thank you for answering, I will try it. Almost sounds too easy.
