Question Monitor stuck in pan mode on RH9.0


I just did a freash install of RH9.0 and the monitor for some reason is stuck in pan mode... how do I get it out?

The video card is a radeon 9000 pro 3D acceleration is enabled. I have 2 monitors connected, but only the primary is enable past bootup mode. The other monitor is disabled at the login screen

What happens with ctrl-alt-<numpad +>? If it won't change, I would re-configure and test the X server with different settings until you get what you want.

I'm reinstalling now... I'll tell you what happens.. I have a hunch it's because I have both of my monitors plugged in to the video card's dual head outputs. I've unplugged the secondary monitor in hopes that it grabs the correct dimensions in the new reinstall...
