Question PLEASE HELP - new to linux SUSE 8.2 GF FX5900 Ultra no 3D Accelleration

Please also help a newbie like me!

I have an:
Athlon XP 2800+
nforce 2 board
geforce FX 5900 Ultra
2 Monitors Hooked UP
24" Sony and 22" Belinea
Suse Linux 8.2 professional
KDE - Gnome

What in hell do i have to do to get the new drivers working and both monitors active and 3d hardware acceleration?!

I have already installed it and added the 'nvidia" instead of the "nv" im my x86config file.
It also displays the nvidia logo at startup but if i try to configure it through yast2 there are two gfx cards in my config. If i delete one, yast just exits.
If i try to enable 3d accel. in Yast2 it says not possible with dualhead!

PLEASE HELP ME NOT TO GO BACK TO WINDOWS !!!!!!

I dont really care about yast and would also do my settings manually in a config file if just somewone would explain me how.

All i Want:
monitor1: in 1600 x 1024 100Hz
monitor2: in 1280 x 1024 85HZ
3D Acceleration !!!!!!!!!!!
24 bit color depth

BIG BIG BIG Thanks.
