I've attached my XF86Config-4 from my machine at work which has a Radeon
VE. This problem may be the least of your worries though. Notice I'm
using the noaccel option, this is because there are problems with the
Radeon VE currently such that if you run it in accelereated mode under
certain hardware (namely AMD 760/761 chipsets) it locks the machine
up solid.  See how you go though.
