Question Radeon 9000 w/ RH9.0 + 2 monitors & extended desktop


I just installed RH 9.0 on my system, which has a Radeon 9000 pro card which has dual heads... The system boots with both displays mirrored until I get to the graphical login screen... at which point the secondary montor goes black.

I want to extrend my desktop over to the second monitor (not mirrored but extended mode)... What do I need to do to achieve this? thx!

Those configuration settings did not work.... is there a place I can call for paid tech support on such questions? (I've got a ton of things I need help on... snort, tcp wrappers, vwmare, wine.... etc...) It might be best if I could call someone who could be paid to step me through the configurations...

I found another website that might help as well... but your best bet might be to buy mandrake linux and such, I know they have support, or you can buy red hat as well, that will get you support as well.
