Default TwinView with different resolutions

Hi,

I want to configure TwinView on my Dell Inspiron 8200
(nvidia-{kernel,glx}-1.0.6629 on Gentoo GNU/Linux). The Laptop has a
resolution of 1400x1050. As second monitor I want to use a beamer (for
presentations) with a resolution of 1024x768.

How do I have to modify my xorg.conf in order to let both connected
monitors show the same picture, but in different resolutions?

This is what I tested so far:

,----[ /etc/X11/xorg.conf ]----
| Section "Device"
| Identifier "GeForce"
| VendorName "NVidia"
| Driver "nvidia"
| Option "DPMS"
| Option "RenderAccel" "on"
| Option "HWCursor" "on"
| Option "CursorShadow" "on"
| Option "CursorShadowAlpha" "32"
| Option "CursorShadowXOffset" "5"
| Option "CursorShadowYOffset" "5"
| Option "NvAGP" "1"
| Option "NoLogo" "on"
| Option "TwinView" "on"
| Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
| Option "MetaModes" "1024x768, 1400x1050;"
| Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT,DFP"
| EndSection
`----

It doesn't work the way I want, because the beamer shows only a 1024x768
pixel big part of the screen, which is 1400x1050.

The only working solution I found till now is to reduce the notebook
resolution to 1024x768. But then the fonts on the notebook's display
become unreadable. So there has to be another solution.

Any ideas?

Regards,
Tassilo
