Hrhr. You've just gotta love ATI
Well, the installer *should* have saved your old configuration in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.fglrx-0.
Just copy it back
# cd /etc/X11
# cp xorg.conf xorg.conf.backup
# cp xorg.conf.fglrx-0 xorg.conf
(As root of course; second line makes a backup of ur current config).
You might have more than just one old config, take the one with the highest number; it shoul dbe the latest pre-ATI setting.
However, those times the ATI stuff messed up my settings, using the old config didn't help a bit. If it does not help for you either, please post the xorg.conf.backup and one of the fglrx-0 backups.
