Dual Monitor Support - Span Function on IBM Laptop

Need some help here in the office. Our local IT person, needs some help here so I figured I'd help her out here.

The office has several IBM Thinkpad T42 with the Radeon 7500 (all on docking stations). They want to use the span feature on dual monitor hook ups. They've tried both software sets from ATI and were unsuccessful. So far the research done has lead to believe that if we had a different video adapter in there we could get it done. Two questions:

1) anyway to get span feature on dual monitors to work with the Mob. Radeon 7500?
2) anyway to replace or upgrade video adapter in laptop? (although i'm fairly certain that most of these suckers are integrated onto the mainboard)

Any advice how to resolve issue?
