Swap CRT DVI outputs

hello guys,
this seems like it should be quite a simple thing to do, and im probably missing something.

ive got the ati drivers installed on my zenwalk box, and i have a radeon 9500.
the drivers work, and i have a dual head setup, one crt monitor and one tft monitor.

the tft is plugged into the dvi port and the crt plugged in the analog port.

all i want to do is swap the screens around, as X currently starts up with screen0 on the tft and screen1 on the crt.
ive tried almost every different combination in xorg lol and still cant do it.

i think its something to do with ati setting the dvi output as primary, but is there anyway i can swap this (without swapping leads around)?

maybe its not so simple then lol,

i tried to get support from ati but then realised they dont support the linux drivers.

i noticed that in my xorg file aticonfig set the busid of both heads to 3.0.0 but when i do xorg -scanpci it shows 3.0.0 and 3.0.1 (secondary) so i tried changing one of the busid's in the xorg config, but then it gave an error of no screens found or something.
ive tried just changing the device/screen configuration but nothing seems to work.

anyone have any ideas?
