Fedora 17 multiseat

Hello, I started to experiment with Fedora because of the multiseat support in 17. I bought HP t150 zero client and I tried to achieve this multiseat functionality. When I plug it, dmesg output shows it has been detected but nothing happens on the second display.
Is there any one with experience in the multiseat setting.
It is very possible that HP t150 can't work with Fedora, but I can't find any successful posts for any multiseat experience with Fedora.

By default, the multiseat support in Fedora 17 works automatically with the devices from Plugable. You'll have to do some hacking or contact the developer for additional device support.

I have the same problem. My PC has an Intel onboard card and an ATI radeon or even Nvidia card. I could in no way have multiseat on fedora 17 though I had multiseat with the same hardware under fedora 14.
It seems there should be a bug which disables one of the cards when one of which is onboard.
Neither Nvidia proprietary nor kmod-nvidia, nor nouveau, nor xorg-drv-ati and ATI proprietary could not resolve the co-existence of intel with the other cards.

I bought 2 Plugable 125 - works like a charm, even authenticating with LDAP. Great.
