Linspire Dual Monitors

I'm useing linspire and have a dual moniter set up, i have a Geforce 4 MX440 in the AGP slot, and a S3 Virge DX pci card. What happens is i have the AGP card set to boot, the the boot screen comes up on the MX440 but linspire will turn off the MX440 and use the S3 Virge DX, so the X windows envoroment comes up on the S3.

Can you help me fix this, as i like having dual moniters and whant the MX440 to be the primery moniter and the S3 as a extention, like in Windows.
