On my ibook with a radeon 7500 I use mergedfb which provides a way to have extended
desktops with DRI. Otherwise Xinerama should work easily, assuming that you know how to
use your video out (see cloning discussions). With xinerama, you loose DRI though.

Don't know if this applies to your ibook.
Have a look at http://ibook.realpath.org/, section Configuration for some example of
configuration files.
