i'm running a desktop on an old g4 tower that i had, which has the ati radeon rv250 (9000) video card. i have xorg running, but came across a adc to vga adapter. so, now i'm on the attempt to try and run dual monitors.

i can't get ati-drivers since it seems that this is missing keyword, and according to the faq and such there isn't support. i'm using the kernel's drivers.

anyone have experience or tips regarding this? all that i'm seeing with individuals with the card in question are on x86 and derivatives.

Here's my xorg.conf. I use an external monitor, but only in clone mode. Maybe there's some information here that can help you. My laptop monitor maximum resolution is 1024x768, but when using the external monitor my resolution is at 1280x1024.

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
