I don't have this problem *anymore*. (eMachines M6807, 3000+ AMD64)
system-config-display works because it doesn't specify any horizontal or
vertical refresh rates (it has no xorg.conf at that time). Choose the
'radeon' driver, and 1024x768, then exit. Hand edit the resulting
xorg.conf, and comment out the refresh rates, then add the max
resolution of your display (Mine is 1280x800, works fine). I do hope the
system-config-display tool gets fixed soon, however.

Ummm. Where did you get 64-bit ATI drivers? Even non-functional ones
would be a good sign to me.
