dual head setup for laptop in docking station

I have a thinkpad laptop which I run in a docking station at work. I have two LCD monitors, unfortunately one is wide screen and the other isn't. I want to get dual head working, but have not been successful. I've verified the setup works in Windows so its not a HW issue.

Here is my latest attempt at xorg.conf:
