I never got Xinerama working with Linux ATI drivers. Proprietary or not.
ATI have a stupid double-screen option for their drivers that allow
to merge both screens. Unfortunately, it's recognized as one big
screen in X11 which makes it hard for the window manager to work well.

Dual head setup work fine with both drivers on my FireGL2 card. What
model do you have ?
