Ignore the secondary ID, it is unused.

You will almost certainly need to use the MonitorLayout option, 
described in the Radeon manpage.  Almost all dualhead/Xinerama 
related problems are resolved by that option, which forcibly 
tells the driver how to treat the display on each head.

Hope this helps.
