Since a had a lot of work to get this working, please publish this thread on the net:

1) sudo apt-get install "linux-headers" according to your default or customized kernel
2) sudo apt-get source fglrx
3) sudo m-a a-i fglrx

To be sure to have the x-input-drivers ready:
a) sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-kbd
b) sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-mouse

4) sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

Have a look in the manual of your monitor(s). You need to know the horizontal sync range, the vertical refresh range and the supported resolutions of your interest.

5) sudo  aticonfig --initial --resolution=0,1280x1024,1024x768,800x600,720x576,640x480 --hsync=0,30-80 --vrefresh=0,55-75 for example.

Remarks:        "aticonfig --initial ..." works only, if you have a clean (dpkg-reconfigured) "/etc/X11/xorg.conf".
                "0," before resolution etc. works on your first screen, use "1," if you want to configure your second screen.

Please no claims, no reclamations. I publish this mini-howto in the hope it may be usefull to you.
You may extend this howto, if you leave my copyright intact.

Kind regards
