First are you sure that they will both operate at the same time.  Some 
motherboards will automatically disable the on-board video when a video card 
is plugged into an AGP or PCI slot.  If your motherboard does that, you can't 
do dual head using the on-board video.

Below is a link in the wiki on doing dual head on a Thinkpad R52, but it has 
the configuration stuff that should work.

I haven't done dual head with two monitors, but I do use dual head with the TV 
out on my Nvidia card and this looks similar to my configuration but adjusted 
for two monitors.

I hope that this helps.
