Are you sure xorg will display on three screens horizontally?  I had the 
impression that you could do two side by side or four horizontally *and* 

IOW, screen 1 left of screen 0, screen 2 above (or below) screen 0.

I also noticed that you don't have Option "Xinerama" "True" in your 
ServerLayout section.  Is that deliberate?  I know ati cards will do 
xinerama-like display natively, but I wonder if using the xorg.conf Option 
would be more effective.
