Wow, I got it working already. All I did was:
cp /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Actually, I did have to make a correction to xorg.conf. The radeonhd
driver did not work, so I switched it to radeon and that fixed it. I
also had to change the order of my screens (right to left), but that's
to be expected.
For the record, my system has an onboard NVidia GeForce 6100 and a PCI
Express ATI Radeon HD 3470. The ATI card has dual DisplayPort outputs,
but my second monitor only has VGA inputs so I opted to use the onboard
VGA instead of buying an adapter.
