Default xinerama & 2 Nvidia cards - Help

I just got a dual-Opteron system, Tyan Thunder K8W. Installed Suse 9.0 Pro AMD64. Bought 2 Nvidia cards with express intent of using dvi connectors to 2 Samsung 21.3" LCD's. Got a FX5900 Ultra and a PCI FX5200. Everything seems to be detected by Suse; however, the 2nd monitor (the one hooked to the PCI 5200) never comes on. If, in the bios I change the VGA boot option from AGP to PCI, then the 5200 takes over and the 5900 never does anything. Here is a snippet from the XFree86.0.log file:

(EE) NVIDIA(1): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphics device!
(EE) NVIDIA(1): *** Aborting ***

I don't know why it's failing. Any help appreciated...

Thanks,
Joe

And here is my XF86Config file:
