    Default Trying to setup 2 dual head cards

    I have two ATI Radeon X1650 dual head cards in this box. One has two 19" monitors the other has two 22" widescreens. I'm able to get one card working but am unable to get the second card to come online. hwinfo shows both cards so I tried hacking up the xorg.conf using the bus address of the second card. Sax then showed a "Display 2" tab that already had the "Activate" box checked but the display would not come online. The Display 2 tab never did show the activate dual head option. Any ideas? This setup works great under Windows 2008 server but I would really like to get this working as my main environment.
