Post Fedora 8 Dual Monitor Support


I wanted to know if anyone have a fix for Dual Monitor config on Fedora 8.

so far I loaded the lastest ATI binary driver from AMD's Site for the Ati Xpress 200. I have 2 HP2045W monitors but they are currently showing the same info on both screens.

I want to be able to drag windows from one screen to the other.. is that the xinerama setup?

below is a copy of my xorg.conf

Thanks in advance
