thanks, create :0.1 works fine.

in order to test this configuration, i run a patch using 80% cpu. after 
5 min my system completly freeze : nothings move exept my mouse. no sound.
the only thing I was able to do is to connect to my computer with sssh 
from another computer : XFree86 was using 99% cpu.
a reboot command does have no effect, I had to press the power buttton.

for me, it looks like a problem with the ATI drivers (?)
how does peoples uses ATI card under linux (wich driver)?
