Default dual head radeon pci + geforce2 agp

hi,

i'm trying to get my dual monitor setup to work. when i startx, only the screen associated with radeon is working. the 2nd screen, supposed to be run by geforce2, is all black.

the message on the terminal that comes out when i log out is
something like

nv could not find match for instance PCI 1:5:0
screen1 deleted, no matching device found

i ran both scanpci and lspci, and my geforce2 did register as PCI 1:5:0.

my PCI card is running as primary, and AGP as secondary. i actually tried reversing the order but it still gave the same msg.

here are the important sections of my XF86Config file
