rotating X display

I am running a trihead gentoo workstation and I am wondering:

Is there a way to configure my Xserver so that it rotates the display 90 degrees clock-, counterclockwise??

thx in advance

Try "xrandr|grep Rotations" to see if you can rotate. If it lists normal, lef, right and so on, do:
xrandr -o left (or right or normal)
