Read up on "MergedFB" options. In particular, here is a snippet from my 
/etc/X11/xorg.conf :

         Option     "MergedFB"                   "true"
         Option     "CRT2HSync"                  "30-80"
         Option     "CRT2VRefresh"               "60"
         Option     "CRT2Position"               "RightOf"
         Option     "MetaModes"                  "1920x1200 1280x1024-1280x1024 960x600_60-800x600"

(this goes into the "Device" section).
