Just to U.S. with L-2 and apply for work permit and then you can work anywhere and renew it every year while spouse is on L-1.

Answer
Right now you have L-2. An filing for H-1 is subject to the cap. You could not work in H until 10/1/07. It is easier to come on L-2 and file for work permit which will take 3 months and you would then be able to work anywhere including company x.
