Dual monitors and extended desktop on ATI
 
Hey, I'm running an ATI 9800 pro and have been attempting to modify my xorg.conf in order to get dual monitors off the same card and get extended desktop.

Thus far i've succeeded in extended desktop, but the second monitor merely is a distorted version of the 1st except when i move the mouse over to it, where the mouse is a block i can use on the monitor.

Im running the most up to date ATI drivers. Only postin the important stuff.
