Default Re: 5700 & twinview & tv

i ve got it running..

nvidia driver 4260 (havent testet with 5336 yet).
xorg 6.7.0
kernel 2.4.23

cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status says:
Status: Enabled
Driver: AGPGART
AGP Rate: 4x
Fast Writes: Enabled
SBA: Enabled


my strategy:
i have 2 x server layouts ("crt" and "tv") and i use the one i need

"crt" uses the crt only (@1280x1024) and "tv" the twin view (both @ 800x600)

"crt" uses screen0 and screen0 uses device0
"tv" uses screen1 and screen1 uses device1

note that the option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "50" is not used in the device1 section. i do not use modeline

first the two layouts.
the first layout is standard (startx) the second is optional and i call it on demand (startx -- -layout tv)
