Dual monitor for Intel 82915G & ATI Rage 128 card on FC6, Dell Optiplex Gx520

I want to setup dual monitor for the Dell Optiplex Gx520 computer.
The motherboard has an Intel Corporation 82915G Integrated Graphics Controller.
Then I add an ATI Rage 128 video card.
The dual monitor work on Windows 2000 with the Intel chip as the primary screen and the ATI chip as the secondary screen.
Therefore no problem with the hw.

However, dual monitor does not work on the Fedora core 6.
The ATI chip is working but the Intel chip do not work (moving the mouse do not go to that monitor and no image is displayed on the monitor).

I configure dual monitor by using the "System, Display, Setting" menu and clicking the "dual head" checkbox, then restart X server.
/etc/X11/xorg.conf is as follows:
# Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Multihead layout"
Screen 0 "Screen0" LeftOf "Screen1"
Screen 1 "Screen1" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
Option "Xinerama" "off"
Option "Clone" "on"
EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
Option "AllowMouseOpenFail" "yes"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "kbd"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"

To try to setup dual monitor, then I modify /etc/X11/xorg.conf to switch the Videocard0 & Videocard1 sections..
i.e.
Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "vesa"
VendorName "Videocard Vendor"
BoardName "Intel Corporation 82915G Integrated Graphics Controller"
BusID "PCI:0:2:1"
Screen 1
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard1"
Driver "r128"
EndSection

I power down & up the computer but the same problem is still here - the ATI chip is working but the Intel chip do not work.
