- Dual external monitors with laptop -- how?

I'm switching computers from my desktop to a laptop as my primary
computer at work. I have two flat panel 17" monitors that I use now
and would like to continue to use with the laptop. Obviously the video
card we installed in the desktop to accommodate the dual monitors won't
work for the laptop, so I'm trying to find options.
Does anyone have their laptop set up to use dual flat panel monitors?
If so, what hardware/software are you using? Someone suggested this,
but I thought I'd try to get others' opinions before I purchase
The laptop is a Lenovo ThinkPad T60 running Windows XP Professional.

interfaces, VGA or DVI. Relatively few laptops have DVI interfaces (and
when they do, it's often only via a docking station). Further, while
many laptops support dual monitors, one of the dual monitors is always
the internal LCD display. I don't know of any that will let you use two
external displays (interface not withstanding).
