Great to hear.
What we are trying to do with the Linux drivers is ensure that the default behaviour just works. Unfortunately it hasn't been that way before, so we now have to work through all the old configs to ensure that it works reliably.
As an aside you will probably find that the modes in xrandr or other RANDR have a lot more options with the automatic detection.

I upgraded fglrx-driver and fglrx-kernel-src to version 8.16.20,
recompiled the kernel module with make-kpkg and... no X.
No errors in dmesg, the only errors in XFree86.0.log are:
(EE) fglrx(0): PreInitModes failed
(EE) fglrx(0): R200PreInit failed
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.
Any hint? Do I have to upgrade to kernel 2.6.12?
I had the same behaviour on my laptop with an ATI mobility radeon 9700.
To fix it just remove in the section monitor of your XF86Config-4:
I commented out HorizSync and VertRefresh (I had no references to
modline) and it works!!!

Thanks very much!
