Login in/ Logout Problems.


I have a RH 8.0 with Dual Monitors setup.

Card0 is a Nvida Vanta 8mb PCI

Card1 is a ATI Radeon 32mb AGP

I can login fine and do what I need to do but if I logout (say to login as root)

I can't get the login screen back its black with just the cursor it won't go to the other monitor and the computer totally goes dead.
But i can still move the mouse.

I've also tired to change the runlevel to 3 but then my 2nd monitor doesn't come on.

Maybe it's a Radeon thing as the same thing happens to me from time to time.
