I am fairly new to Linux. I have 2 video cards in my system (geForce 3, and geForce 2 MX), and I am trying to get dual monitor support. I have no idea how to do this.

I have tried RH9, Slackware, and Mandrake 9.2 and tried using the config utils from each distro to get both cards recognized and functional... RH9, and M9.2 both register both cards, but I don't know to enable them both. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Yes ... set up 2 monitors and 2 cards in XF86Config and in the Section "ServerLayout" call both screens.
