Well with your 2.4.15-pre7-ben0 the external monitor was working with my
TiBook.  Worked quite well.  I did not set the external monitor the same as the
LCD 'cause the refresh rates were different but I could turn on the external
and the LCD off and use the external quite well.  So I can tell you that

I did as you ask.

When the machine booted I got this on the external monitor:

copying OF device tree...done
Initializing fake screen: ATY,RageM3p12A
Calling quiesce
returning 0x01400000 from prom_init

I saw a message concering quiesce before.  Maybe this message was from you.
Sorry I did not keep it.

Once I started X The screen displays garbage but seems to change when I bring
up windows or change desktops.  So something is out there.  Looks like the
frame buffer is out of order or something?  I don't know I am just guessing.
