Description of problem:
The best XF86Config that we've come up with doesn't quite work.
It comes up dual-head, but when the mouse is moved off of the first monitor,
that monitor goes blank (sleep). The monitor can be re-activated by (1) move
the mouse onto that monitor (it won't yet be visible), and then (2) switch
virtual consoles away from X and back again.
Although the monitor comes back, it will go away again when the mouse leaves it.
[This config is the result of many experiments. Some other configs crashed the
X server without apparent reason. Some gave two cloned screens (but only one
dispayed a cursor). Some left only one monitor and that at an inappropriately
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.RHL9 + Radeon 9000 pro + 2 newish monitors
2.install enclosed XF86Config
Actual Results: see above
Expected Results: dual head Radeon 9000 pro system runs as well as former
system (RHL7.x + Radeon VE)

XF86Config described above

log of X started with this config
Tried Radeon VE dual-head with this RHL9 installation -- same problem.
We have no problem with this Radeon VE under RHL7.3 and RHL8.
Radeon 9000 pro isn't supported until RHL9 so we cannot try it with the earlier
