I tried both of these ideas, separately and together. Seem to be getting 
closer. Instead of a blank screen I get random coloured vertical bars on 
parts of the screen. Still get this:

(II) RADEON(0): Primary:
 Monitor   -- TMDS
 Connector -- DVI-D
 DAC Type  -- TVDAC/ExtDAC
 TMDS Type -- Internal
 DDC Type  -- VGA_DDC
(II) RADEON(0): Secondary:
 Monitor   -- CRT
 Connector -- VGA
 DAC Type  -- Primary
 TMDS Type -- External
 DDC Type  -- DVI_DDC

Should note here, there is no VGA connector on the card. There is a DVI 
connector (the one I am using) and the one that looks like DVI, but bigger, 
ADC I think?

Still no joy. Sorry for taking so long to get back to the list, I had to go 
out...
