Can I get dual-head with a Radeon 9200 and a monitor / TV


I have a Radeon 9200 card with a digital video out plugged into my TV. SaX2 really wants me to pick a monitor, it's a TV?!? I tried some of the generic things like -> vesa or whatever. Never a flicker after grub - I think the card copies whatever on the TV until linux takes over. The boot for windows keeps the clone display until the desktop comes up extended. I want the same thing to happen in Linux.

What version of Suse? I think the release notes for 10.1 make some type of comment about dual-head support on ATI cards not working (yet).

So I get 10.2 and it works great except it doesn't have the option for a TV as the second monitor.
