Dual Monitor Support in Slackware 10?

Hey guys,

Been working on my cousin's computer - running Slackware 10.0... He's got a couple of Radeon 7000 video cards, and we want to use them to get dual monitor support... problem is, the computer freezes on boot-up as soon as we stick even one of them in... I've tried a few different settings via xorgconfig, and manually editing the xorg.conf file, but to no avail - it still freezes on boot with the cards in (I don't even think it detects my changes - we just have to pull them out, run the monitor to the on-board video out., and have to reconfigure xorg.conf just to run X... I've been doing some searching around, but haven't come across anyone with a problem quite like this... Perhaps an update to the kernel would be effective? Any ideas would be greatly appreciate...

Thanks a lot,

-Wiski C.

By what do you mean "freezes on boot-up"??

At what stage?

POST, bootloader, kernel load, when X starts? when man?
