On my work laptop, I'm looking for a way to choose which monitor setup is attached (before login, or in GRUB)

At work i have a Vertical 2208 Dell monitor, and at home i have U2711(horizontal) and sometimes I use the laptop "standalone".

I can set the monitors up no problem, but it's annoying to have to do it every time.

I would also like this configuration to include different wallpapers.

Currently running Maverick, but will upgrade to 12.04. Currently using Xinerama and I have a Nvidia NVS 3100M

Is there a way to configure Xorg for this, or is there an application i can install for this?
