Don't know about flat-panel, tho I don't know why it wouldn't work, but I
was running my Radeon 9250 SE dual-output at 2048x3072 -- that's two
2048x1536 resolution, 21" monitors, stacked on top of each other.

Of course, in that mode, it won't run 3D, but it certainly *WILL* run 3D
with just a single monitor @ 2048x1536, AND it is supposed to run dual
monitors in single frame-buffer 3D mode as long as the total resolution is
<=2048x2048, so dual monitor 1024x768 for 2048x768, or 1024x1536, should
be fine in 3D mode, with >=xorg-6.8 (which dramatically improved the xorg
native Radeon drivers).
