PCI graphics card problem


Hello,
I have two graphics cards, one radeon 9200 on agp, and one radeon 9250 on pci. I'd like to have a triple screen setup with xinerama (or ATi's equivalent, whatever) I have 2 screens connected to the agp card, and one connected to the pci card. Problem is, I can't configure the pci card to actually be used... In ubuntu, no matter how I edit xorg.conf, it isn't used, or once or twice it was corrupted... And in SuSE, it doesn't show up in Sax.. What's going on? Is there a way to have dual graphics cards in linux?

This is the output of lspci:

Code:
lspci | grep VGA
00:0b.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV280 [Radeon 9200 PRO] (rev 01)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV280 [Radeon 9200] (rev 01)
I run openSuSE 10.1 and Ubuntu 6.06...
Here's suse's xorg.conf:
Code:

I've just used ubuntu's xorg.conf in Suse to see if that worked (since sax doesn't detect the pci card), just changing the driver from radeon to fglrx, but when I type 'startx' I get this error:
Code:
(WW) fglrx: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:0:11:0) found
(WW) fglrx: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:0:11:1) found
(WW) fglrx: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:1:0:1) found
Here are the modified device sections:
Code:
Section "Device"
	Identifier	"Radeon 9200"
	VendorName	"ATi"
	Driver		"fglrx"
	BusID		"PCI:1:0:0"
	Screen		0
EndSection

Section "Device"
	Identifier	"Radeon 9200 2"
	VendorName	"ATi"
	Driver		"fglrx"
	BusID		"PCI:1:0:1"
	Screen		1
EndSection

Section "Device"
	Identifier	"Radeon 9250"
	VendorName	"ATi"
	Driver		"fglrx"
	BusID		"PCI:0:11:0"
	Screen		2	
EndSection

Section "Device"
	Identifier	"Radeon 9250 2"
	VendorName	"ATi"
	Driver		"fglrx"
	BusID		"PCI:0:11:1"
EndSection
Changin 'Screen 2' to 'Screen 0' or 1 doesn't change anything...
Any ideas how to fix this?
Thanks

[EDIT] This is the output of lspci:
Code:
lspci | grep ATI
00:0b.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV280 [Radeon 9200 PRO] (rev 01)
00:0b.1 Display controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV280 [Radeon 9200 PRO] (Secondary) (rev 01)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV280 [Radeon 9200] (rev 01)
01:00.1 Display controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV280 [Radeon 9200] (Secondary) (rev 01)
So the values are right in my xorg.conf.. anyone know why it doesn't seem to see that?
