The ''Option        "RegistryDwords"    "EnableBrightnessControl=1"'' line allows you to change the brightness of the notebook's LCD via the Fn-HOME and Fn-END key combinations. DFP-0 is detected as the notebook's LCD and since I'm usually connecting this computer to my external LCD, I use ''Option        "UseDisplayDevice"  "DFP-1, DFP-0, CRT-0"'' to set DFP-1 as the primary display.
