Windows Server 2003 and dual monitor support

I have my desktop running Server 2003 for testing and monitoring functions.  I have two video cards installed in the mahcine (Dell GX240).  The OS "sees" both of the video cards (one AGP, other PCI), yet the display properties does not allow me to enable or set options for the second display adapter.  Any ideas?

DId you install the drivers & software from the manufacturers website for the card?

I should have added that I am using an ATI Rage128 Pro AGP and an ATI Rage XL PCI.

ATI Website....
"All drivers for Windows Server 2003 are maintained and deployed by Microsoft. This operating system currently provides drivers for RAGE XL products only."

Try going into the BIOS settings and changing "Primary Video Controller" to "Auto", if it isn't already...

I got it working on my machine a while back, but I dont know the exact details.  All I remember is that I had to use my card's windows 2000/XP drivers and utilities.

On another laptop with a RADEON 7500, I used ATI's hydravision util to get it working.

of course, both my scenarios are different than yours ;)   but it might be worth a try...
