Dual monitors with one VGA output

Hi all,

I have a Dell D410 laptop with the media station.  The media station only provides a single VGA output.  However, I recently purchased a dual monitor display stand with two Samsung SyncMaster flat panel monitors.  Each monitor has a VGA and DVI input.  How can I use my single VGA output to extend my video display to two monitors.

Thanks!
Mike

Matrox has the DualHead2Go, which will let you drive two monitors if you have an ATI, nVidia, or Intel graphics chipset: http://www.matrox.com/graphics/en/gxm/products/dh2go/home.php

Just to bolster Callandors suggestion, the Dell Latitude D410 is on the Matrox compatibility list for the DualHead 2 Go.
