Description of problem:
Anaconda defaults dualhead display setup to unuseable configuration.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install phoebe to dualhead display, using for example Matrox G450 card.
Actual Results: Monitor 2 displays exactly the same contents as monitor 1.
Expected Results: Anaconda should give dualhead display users the option of
configuring either giant merged display, two independent display screens, or the
current default of two identical displays.
SuSE defaults to two independent display screens, which is at least useable.
Most users would prefer a giant merged display, which is the Matrox default on
Windows or Linux, i.e., two 1600x1200 displays form a merged 3200x1200 display.
This would require support for dual head in redhat-config-xfree86.
