Hello Jeremy,

I feel more lucky than you are, here are some excerpts of my xorg.conf:

..
Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Videocard0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     24
        EndSubSection
..

as you can see, X.org and the radeon driver apparently get the right
max screen size w/o any specific settings.


Regards,
