Lightbulb Nice going!

OK sussed it. A friend at work had had the same pain. Apparently there's a bug in the driver which disables digital output unless you're using TwinView - hence the blank screens when I tried it.

A working setup for a single flatpanel is the following:

Section "Device"
Identifier "NVidia 9700FX"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "TV"
Option "NvAgp" "2"

Option "TwinView"
Option "MetaModes" "1280x1024, 1280x1024"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP,DFP"

The connectedmonitor line looks wrong, but is actually the thing that makes it work
Excellent info!!
This will be helpful for those that experience a similar problem with flat screens.
