Dual Screen with Radeon 7000 and Matrox Millenium

I have a radeon 7000 in my AGP slot and a Matrox Millenium in the top PCI slot. I am running Fedore Core 2. For a working install, I had to remove the Matrox from the pci slot during the install process. After the install was complete I put the Matrox back in the top PCI and rebooted. When I go to display settings the video card is listed as the Matrox Millenium however the monitor with the output is connected to the Radeon. When I go to the dual head section, I have the option of turning the radeon 7000 on as secondary, but when I do there is no change.

How do i go about changing the video card priority and how do I get dual head working? Any suggestions would be really helpful.

If I have been unclear in any part of the explanation please let me know so that I can clarify.

Thanks in advance,
