Nvidia + Twinview; Howto switch primary monitor?

I've got both monitors working just fine with Nvidia(GeForce 6800) and twinview, a CRT(DVI->VGA adapter) and LCD(VGA connector). I want the LCD to be primary, display 1, and the CRT to be display 2, but I can't seem to find any way to tell xorg to do this.

Right now, everytime I boot up FC3, my log in screen along with my icons and the KDE start bar are on the CRT. Any suggestions how to change this would be greatly apprieciated!

:EDIT Ops, thought I had this put in the Linux General Forum, sorry for the miss post
