Two framebuffer consoles


I have computer with two video cards. Intel855GME Onboard and SM721 (Lynx3d) as second PCI. Linux (2.6.10) on boot initialises only external card SM721 and console with it. So, I have only /dev/fb0. Is it possible initialise onboard videocard as /dev/fb1 device. Here is lspci output :

When I use onboard Intel855GME all in nice. Module
Code:

is Ok. But after inserting card SM721(Lynx3D)
Code:
intelfb
don't sees device. Although lspci shows it. Don't know why.
