Dual head setup, Fedora 10 KDE, Radeon RV100 QY

I have two monitors connected to my Radeon RV100 QY card, one to the DVI, the other to the D-SUB VGA. Both resolutions 1024x768. I installed system-config-display, which created an xorg.conf file.
# Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "single head configuration"
	Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Section "InputDevice"
# keyboard added by rhpxl
	Identifier  "Keyboard0"
	Driver      "kbd"
	Option	    "XkbModel" "pc105+inet"
	Option	    "XkbLayout" "us"

Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Videocard0"
	Driver      "radeon"

Section "Screen"
	Identifier "Screen0"
	Device     "Videocard0"
	DefaultDepth     24
	SubSection "Display"
		Viewport   0 0
		Depth     24
		Modes    "1024x768" "1024x768" "832x624" "832x624" "800x600" "800x600" "720x400" "720x400" "640x480" "640x480" "640x400" "640x400" "640x350" "640x350"
What should I add to my xorg.conf to enable dual head display, having not had to edited mine before? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Use the graphical frontend to do it, xorg.conf is deprecated. Any xrandr frontend can setup a dual monitor config with the radeon driver.
