IMHO the best is to try to load the latest i830 DRI driver, you should
see a double output like

i852GM/i855GM GMCH

i852GM/i855GM GMCH
(other infos for my old ASUS M3410C and GNU/Linux in the link above) and
IIRC you can see it from /var/log/XFree86.log.0. Anyway there're some
other posts on this list about this subject. AFAIK no one could use dual
head ATM.

Not exactly, on David Dawes' page about the i810/i830 driver
	http://www.xfree86.org/~dawes/845driver.html
there's a patch for 'agpgart' on old 2.4.x/2.5.x.

AFAIK perhaps you need the latest XFree86 CVS in order to use it (I
never tried it on latest CVS, just on Debian experimental XFree86 4.3.0)

Exactly, David Dawes page (which is the general i810/i830 driver
	http://www.xfree86.org/~dawes/845driver.html
or some instructions on my ASUS M3410C Debian report

Thx, bye,
