      Here's an XF86config that's claimed to be working with a 7500. Original

      Note that you specify two separate "Device" sections for the card, and
      just point xinerama to the different screens. This is giving me an urge
      to haul that external CRT out of the cupboard and have a play with my
      setup!

      Also, what version of XFree are you using? The standard one from Redhat
      9? There's a bug in 4.3.0 that stuffs up xinerama on the 7500:
