Can you explain what steps you've done so far? I think with an ATI Radeon it should be possible to get this working, but may require editing your xorg.conf file to add the second monitor. Have you edited xorg.conf so far?

hi,
    I should admit that i can reach the xorg.conf file but to modify it is what i do not know. this is how my xorg.conf looks like, and i have not done anything with it. Thanks for looking at this i shll be waiting. Ubuntu.
