Making a dual monitor setting in Kcontrol endure

Yet another computer in the house having died, I have temporarily set my 
husband up using my netbook with a monitor, keyboard and mouse, running 
Squeeze with Trinity

A single screen is set up that displays on both monitors the same.

This is unusable on the monitor.

I can find no way of setting two different settings.  The screen number 
control is greyed out.

So I use KContriol to set up a better resolution and sync rate, which 
necessarily sets itself up on both.  Except that the netbook screen goes on 
strike and goes blank. 

This suits me fine!  But, although I have set this up in KControl, every time 
my husband reboots, I have to set the monitor up for him again.

He is forgetting even those computer skills that I had managed to teach him.  
I haven't a hope of teaching him how to use KControl for himself.

Help!  When I have finished the course I am doing, I shall set him up 
properly.  But that is not until December.  I need to limp him through now.  

So is there any way I can persuade Trinity to keep the settings in KControl??
