Question RH9 - 2 Radeon video cards - dual monitors

I just did a fresh instal of RH9 and have 2 ATI Radeon video cards I want to spread my desktop across (2monitors)

The AGP is an 9000 Pro 64MB and the pci card is a 7000

The XF86Config file looks like this in pico:

UW PICO(tm) 4.2 File: XF86Config

# XFree86 4 configuration created by pyxf86config

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "DevInputMice" "AlwaysCore"

Section "Files"
# RgbPath is the location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db"). There is normally
# no need to change the default.

# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.

The second monitor is dead (blank, black) but the video card comes up in the hardware browser shows both cards (the 7000 is the blank card)

Should there not be more to this file? Or is this not the correct file?

btw how do you save in pico again? (forgot) thx
