I have had much better luck with my dual-head setup running:

X -configure

as root than using system-config-display.  X -configure will create a 
file called xorg.conf.new in /root, and you can test it by running the 

X -config /root/xorg.conf.new

to make sure that both monitors come up.  Now in my case, I have two 
separate video cards.  Not sure how it will do with one card with 
multiple out.
