Depends on what your issues are. You likely don't need anything in
your xorg.conf, unless you really want it hard coded. Once you get X
to start up then just use xrandr. Remember the commands and toss it in
your .xinitrc.

In my old dual-monitor setup I needed to add a 'Virtual' line
specifying my maximum resolution in my xorg.conf. It went in the
Display subsection of the Screen section I think it was. But that was
just due to my odd monitor sizes. This was on an HD 3870.

I'd post my xorg.conf but I recently re-installed and moved to just 1
big monitor. So I don't even have an xorg.conf anymore.
I'm sure if you gave more detail on what problems you were having we
could offer more specific answers.
