Dual Monitor with YDL 3.0.1 and PPC 7300/200

I recently installed YDL 3.0.1 on my old PPC 7300/200 (+Sonnett Crescendo G3 450 MHz) and it works fine, using the standard video output (although I had some trouble getting the right video mode and I do not know up to now how I managed that and what chips are in there).

There is a second graphic adapter and monitor (Villagetronic MPDD+) attached on the PCI bus which workes fine with MacOS but is idle now when I work with Linux.

I could not find the right information about how to make XFree86 familiar with this video card.

Is there anybody who uses more than one monitor with this hardware ?
