Ati graphics card driver GUI

Note: I'm not really much of a noob anymore but this is a bit of a noobie-like question.
I just had to reinstall Slackware and everything's good except I my graphics card isn't configured for my dual-monitor set up. I know the "aticonfig --initial=dual-head" thing, but I got it configured a certain way so that I it was one screen stretched over two monitors which was helpful for some of my purposes. I don't really know how to do this with the console though, because I originally did it with a GUI. But now I can't figure out how to pull it up again.

Wow, I feel stupid posting the solution to my problem so soon after putting it up.

I found it by going into KDE and searching "ati". It came up right at the top.
