I'm in a bit of a pickle.

I've got two display adapters and two monitors.

Primary:
NVIDIA GeForce 7300GS
Samsung SyncMaster 920NW

Secondary:
ATI Radeon X1300
Belinea 101715

Every time I install the ATI fglrx driver and specify it as the driver for the device in xorg.conf it removes my nvidia driver. I can get back into X server if I then changed it to nv but I don't think that that is the better driver.

I don't care about 3D support on my second display as it's only going to be used to extend the desktop, not for games or anything.

Can somebody advise me on my best option please? :)
