lspci says this:
0000:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV280
[Radeon 9200] (rev 01)
0000:01:00.1 Display controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV280 [Radeon
9200] (Secondary) (rev 01)
and somebody said to me that all I need is another Section "Device"
and another Section "Screen" in my XF86Config to handle that, but I
did that, and it doesn't work.
It is ENTIRELY possible that I have done that wrongly of course, or
that there is a bit missing somewhere.
