I've similarly experienced dualhead not working with my Radeon Xpress
200M, and tried using the binary DRI drivers as above (specifically
the 20060330 build) on Ubuntu Dapper. Sadly they didn't work; when X
started with the new drivers installed, the screen was just black. (It
was obviously *working*, just that the screen was black.) I used the
install.sh script in both -common- and -radeon- drivers to install

and irc is minized to it

have to kill him
