Description of problem:
xinerama will not work with the radeon driver and radeon 7500.
xf86config is set correctly. when using driver supplied with mandrake
9.1, xinerama works. change back to fedora's radeon driver, and i am
back to cloned displays
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.configure xf86config for dual head

With help from Mike Harris I got xinerama working fine. I will attach
my x config. I had to add a a couple of lines to the conf file that
is generated, but it now works.

Should be fixed with system-config-display-1.0.10-1 in Rawhide.
