xorg + nvidia drivers = ok
resolution on notebook_tft (15") = ok (1024x768)
resolution on extern monitor_tft (19"), connected on vga-out= 1024x768, not ok.... I wanna set it to 1280 x1024.

Maybe a stupid question,... Is it possible to clone a1024x768 to 1280x1024?
I already modified xorg.conf, but still no good results...

thanx...

You can but the smaller monitor will be scrolling around.
Use something like
Code:
    Option         "CloneDisplay" "3"
    Option         "CloneMode" "1280x1024"
    Option         "CloneHSync" "30.0-98.0"
    Option         "CloneVRefresh" "50.0-160.0"

In your device section.
And your screen section will look like this:
Code:
Section "Screen"
     Identifier "Default Screen"
     Device     "ATI Radeon Mobility M6 LY"
     Monitor    "Laptop LCD"
     DefaultColorDepth 16
     SubSection "Display"
          Depth     16
          Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
          ViewPort  0 0
          Virtual 1280 1024
     EndSubSection
     SubSection "Display"
          Depth     24
          Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
          ViewPort  0 0
          Virtual 1280 1024
     EndSubSection
EndSection
