Well, just for some comparison, I tried a X1300pro.  With the radeon
driver, it wouldn't support dual head correctly.  With the radeonhd
driver, it wouldn't detect the screen resolutions correctly (insisted
that I had 1368x768 displays when they were 1280x1024).  I'm using
radeonhd from the VC head.

At some point I mean to setup a test machine to try again and get the
driver fixed.

In the mean time I found the HD2400 to be more usable, even though the
driver support is much further behind (so it is slow).
