Ok guys, I am currently thinking of making another 100% switch on my iBook. I think I would stick with Ubuntu, cause I do indeed need the support, and ubuntu being one of the biggest things since sliced bread, I know I can get support.
So anyway..
I like how I have it set up currently, so I am going to reinstall and use about 90% of the drive. The only thing that is holding me back really is the Dual Screen support. I can manage to mirror the main monitor, which is better than nothing, but I would like dual screens, as I have become used to it while on MacOSX.
Does anybody have any idea on how to do this?
Everything else seems to be working well, except I can't get XGL cause my stupid card..That was just to boot to show off tbh..

Anyway...
Stats..
IBook G4 (1.33Ghz)
Card is ATI Technologies, Inc. M11 NV [FireGL Mobility T2e]
Currently I use the redeon driver..but ati driver also works well..
Anything else you need give me a shout.

This shouldn't differ from

This shouldn't differ from any other ATi dual screen setup, so following http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Dual_Monitors#ATI should work. (ignore the bits about the kernel, as you're not on gentoo or LFS or something)
