dual-head or xinerama is the wrong solution for that purpose.

i810switch is one tool, but not working properly with the 945GM. You only can
use it once then a restart of the xserver is necessary.

I just changed the device-section as follows:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/940GML Express
Integrated Graphics Controller"
Driver "i810"
BusID "PCI:0:2:0"
Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"
Option "clone" "true"
Option "MonitorLayout" "CRT,LFP"

This produces a clone on the external VGA and is working fine.
