I have mirroring working on my iBook G4 with a Radeon 9200. Xorg 6.8.2 does
not include the necessary code for this, so there are two things you can try:

1) Try Xorg HEAD.

2) See what patches Ubuntu uses in their Xorg package. They have backported
   some of Ben's work from HEAD, and so their Xorg (6.8.2-10) can do mirroring
   at least on my iBook.

cheers,

John
