A problem with dualhead X. NEED HELP.


Hi all. I have a system multibooting Windows 2000 and Fedora 2. I have a dualhead setup and unfortainitly it runs perfect under windows but I can not get it to work under Fedora. I have been working on this for about 2 weeks now with no luck. Here is my video cards result from a lspci:
Code:
00:05.0 VGA compatible controller: Cirrus Logic GD 5434-8 [Alpine] (rev 26)
and
Code:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: S3 Inc. VT8375 [ProSavage8 KM266/KL266]
I have been trying to use Xinerama with X11R6 to accomplish the dual monitors setup but only the AGP (ProSavage8) card works. The AGP card is my default card and both monitors work in a console just not X. When I checked my xserver logs there is a line that I guess is the problem with my second monitior. It is:
Code:
(EE) CIRRUS(1): No valid MMIO address in PCI config space
and under that:
Code:
(EE) CIRRUS(1): I2C initialization failed
Here is my video section of my xconfig:
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "Dell E771mm"
DisplaySize 300 230
HorizSync 30.0 - 70.0
VertRefresh 50.0 - 160.0
Option "dpms"
EndSection

I didn't show the xinerama part because I am pretty certain it is correct. I hope someone can please help me on this cause I am about to give up on it. Any help would be great and if you need any thing else just post and I'll give you the info. Thanks
