It might have something to do with your video card - not all of them
have drivers that are flexible or considerate enough to just switch
from one port to the other.  Mine's an nvidia geForce 7100gs, and I am
using the nvidia driver (not sure if I rebooted to the rpmforge one or
am still running the nvidia original yet or not) but they seem to be
rather accommodating.
