Question Linux Newbie w/ question on Dual monitors

Hello All

If I am making a repeat question please point me in the right direction.

I'm running Red Hat 8.0 on My Machine here @ work.

I got Dual Montoirs setup(YEAH!) but I have 2 problems with it.

1. When I logout of either KDE or GNOME, I don't get a login screen and I have to reboot the PC in order to logback in again.

Any ideas???

2. I'm still trying to figure out the whole changing refreash rates and screen rezolutions but I can't get it for the life of me....I'd like to have both screens at 75Hz or more.

Thank you for ur help.

Are your video cards the same? What about the monitors? Are they the same model?
