Hey.
When I updated Ubuntu to 8.10 my dual monitor setup stopped working. Now only my primary monitor works, with bad resolution.
I change the xorg.conf to


Section "Device"
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Configured Monitor"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"
Device "Configured Video Device"
EndSection

I get good resultion.

My old xorg.conf which was mostly autogenerated looks like this
