Have moved the 7000 to the top slot on the 9500, 2 monitors attached.

When using 2.4.20-pre9-ben0, booting into RL3 (not troubleshooting X
at this point) and kernel arg video=radeon:1024x768-16 at 75, the
console boot briefly appears to start in accelerated mode, then the
monitor goes black and stays that way. However, I can tell from
listening to the disks that the boot proceeds normally.

Typing blindly to get the dmesg, we have:

	PCI: Enabling device 00:0d.0 (0086 -> 0087)
	radeonfb: ref_clk=2700, ref_div=12, xclk=18277 from OF
	radeon_get_moninfo: bios 4 scratch = 0
	Console: switching to colour frame buffer device 128x48
	radeonfb: ATI Radeon VE QY DDR SGRAM 32 MB
	radeonfb: DVI port no monitor connected
	radeonfb: CRT port no monitor connected

Am I wrong, or does it appear to think I have no monitors connected?
The main monitor's power LED indicates it has sync (green), while the
second monitor's power LED indicates not (yellow).

FWIW, lspci -vv yields
