Dell GX280, Intel 915G, SUSE 9.3, Dual Head display


I'm trying to run SUSE 9.3 professional and I wanted to get my two monitors to work. I have two Dell 1701 flat panels connected to the onboard Intel 915 video controller (one digital and one analog output).

I've tried the SUSE graphical tool (is it SaX2?) and a number of different xorg.conf configurations with no luck. I either get cloned displays or the second monitor goes dark.

I was wondering if anybody got dual head displays to work with Intel 915 and what was your config file. Alternatively, maybe people here know some tricks I can try in the xorg.conf file.

In case there is no good answer to the dual head problem, what would be a good low - midrange video card that's well supported and provides dual head capabilities?

thanks a lot
