Default MultiGPU Option with two 7950 GX2's

Hi all,

I have a new Dell XPS 700 with 2 GeForce 7950 GX2 cards in it. I was planning to run with the following configuration:
24" flat panel connected to the primary video card running in MultiGPU mode
19" flat panel connected to the secondary video card using one GPU
19" flat panel connected to the secondary video card using the other GPU

The problem I am having is that the Nvidia driver complains that it is not able to use MultiGPU and that I should use SLI instead (which is not what I want). If I remove the second video card, then the first works fine in MultiGPU mode.

So the question. Is what I am wanting to do technically possible? Do I need to do something to trick the X server into treating the two cards as distinct entities and ignore any possible SLI capabilities?

If this setup is technically possible, then I will post log outputs and such to help in debugging.

Thanks in advance.
