Default radeonhd with two monitors

I'm in the process of building my new workstation (OpenSolaris 2008.11), but am a bit stuck with configuring X to span my two monitors (3840x1200).

Graphics card: PowerColor Radeon HD 4870
Monitors: 2 x Dell 2408WFP 24" (1920x1200)

I've searched around various places and stitched together a file for /etc/X11/xorg.conf. However, using this file gives me only console log-on - if I remove the xorg.conf, I get gdm starting up, but the screen is essentially duplicated on both monitors.

Any idea where I've gone wrong? I've copied in xorg.conf below, the Xorg.0.log is here.

Thanks...
