Dual video card problems

I've done my testing and have decided to upgrade my machine from XP to Fedora tonight, however there is one issue. My setup:

P4-1.6/512MB RAM
Geforce 4 4600 (AGP) --> hp L1925 19" TFT
Geforce 2 MX (PCI) -- > Compaq TFT5000S 15" TFT

When I boot from Fedora Core 1, it dies when it gets to the part where X detects my graphics card and monitor.

It detects my Geforce 2 MX as being connected to my hpL1925...but not my GeForce 4 and TFT5000S. It does not see the GF4 and the 5000S at all.

Basically it thinks that my Geforce 2 is hooked to the 19", when in fact it is hooked up to 15".

The light the starts to blink on my L1925 and both displays are black. I've gone in the BIOS and set my primary display to be PCI and it works fine, using my GF 2 and 15" LCD. I, however, want my AGP/19" combo to be my main display.

Any ideas?
