I don't have one of those files, but I do have an xorg.conf file in that 
directory. It contains two Device sections (I was playing with setting up 
dual head monitors but the video artifacts predate that playing):

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Videocard0"
        Driver      "radeon"
        VendorName  "Videocard vendor"
        BoardName   "ATI Radeon Mobility U1"

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Videocard1"
        Driver      "radeon"
        VendorName  "Videocard Vendor"
        BoardName   "ATI Radeon Mobility U1"
        BusID       "PCI:1:5:0"
        Screen      1
