Hi.

I did make sure I included support for 'radeon framebuffer'. I noticed I did 
not include support for USB monitor, so that may have been the culprit. In 
any event, I am up and running now (thanks to the config I found at the wiki) 
so all is good!

Just building kde now, and will attempt Xorg configuration tomorrow...
