aticonfig

Since version 8.18.6 the fglrx driver includes the aticonfig tool which simplifies xorg.conf editing. Here are some useful commands this tool offers (for a complete list see aticonfig --help).

Initial setup (creates device section using fglrx)
sudo aticonfig --initial
Enable Video acceleration (Xv Overlay)
sudo aticonfig --overlay-type=Xv
Force fglrx to use kernel's AGP driver instead of own implementation (only use when internal agpgart doesn't work)
sudo aticonfig --internal-agp=off
