Indeed it does.  Running "xrandr --auto" would be a good start, as
long as you're using one of {ati, intel}.  The nouveau driver for
nVidia cards may work, too, but you obviously aren't using that.

As for the original question: you can create an xorg.conf & X will use
it.  You could also try the System->Administration->Screens & Graphics
program, which should set it up for you.  File bugs if it doesn't work
