Default Problem with dual monitor setup on two NVS 285 cards

Greetings to all,

I am having difficulties with enabling second separate X screen in NVIDIA X Server Settings. Solaris is 10 11/6, 64 bit kernel and drivers are Version: 100.14.19.

My configuration is: Intel Core 2 Duo E6300, Intel Bad Axe 2 D975XBX2, 2x Patriot PSD21G66721 GB, 2x Patriot PSD251266781 512MB, [SCSI] Hitachi HUS103073FL3600 74GB, [SATA] Maxtor 6V250F0 250GB, 2x nVidia Quadro NVS285, Adaptec 39160, Plextor PX-R412C, PX-W1210S, PX-40TS, Samsung SH-S183A, CoolerMaster 430W...

Twinview works perfectly. Plug and play, few clicks, and I have my second monitor up and running. However, when I connect monitors on separate cards, X Server Settings sees it but when I attempt to activate separate X screen and save that to "X configuration file", X Server Settings crashes, making no changes. Can someone provide an example of xorg.conf file with two separate GPUs/cards that I try edit it manually? Am I missing something in the procedure?

Here is screenshot of NVIDIA X Server settings:

So, as I have said, pressing "Save to X configuration file" crushes this screen, making no change of whatsoever.

I would appreciate any assistance!
