My main Video card is an Nvidia GeForce II 400MX AGP, and the other is an ATI All in Wonder Pro PCI.

Not exactly the same, but...

I got a MB with onboard i810e graphics, and added an old ATI (rage II or
something) pci card.  The odd thing is if I set my bios to make both
cards work in w2k, the computer hangs when starting x under linux. 
Shifting the primary video setting in bios makes both cards work in
linux, but just on in w2k.

Check if there is some bios setting you can flip with, it _might_ help.

Good luck,
