That xorg.conf is flawed - there are several sections with the same name
Downgrading to the previous X and drivers is the only way to get ATI drivers for some cards - thanks for providing the link
But beware it is not without risks - it might not work at all although it should

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
