And finally IT WORKS!!!!!!!!

   Sorry for the capitals, but It has been a whole week of ctrl+alt+backspace.

I had to install the version from experimental
(xserver-xorg-video-ati_6.6.191-1_i386.deb) and on monitorLayout I
have to set:

   Option "MonitorLayout" "TMDS,CRT", becouse "TMDS,TMDS" dindn't
start my sencond monitor

My computer is now completelly free. No propietary programs/drivers
:D. I would like to help in the radeon open source driver improvement.
Please tell me if you want to test the driver in the X700 board.

Any idea about when dri/glx will be supported by ati open source driver?

  Thank all of you for your help
