Here's the previous post without the Xorg.0.log

the list software says it's too big, and it's awaiting
approval by an administrator.

Have a couple ATI cards plugged in, was trying to get dual head working.

I've tried a bunch of xorg.conf files using the free radeon driver an a
versions of the proprietary driver.  Here's the latest.

Rebuilt the attached xorg.conf using:

    dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

Removed useless clutter from the xorg.conf before rebooting.

It appeared to work.  My desktop came up and I got to use it for a few
before it went away or got covered up by the white screen.

Tried turning the:

    Option        "UseFBDev"        "true"

On and off.

But now the screen "Whites Out" just after the desktop starts to come up,
before I have a chance to try using it.

Also attached is the latest Xorg.0.log
