Default Geforce FX5200 TwinView help!

I'm trying to get TwinView to work on my SuSE 9.3 config with the 7667 drivers. I've done a lot of searching and think I have everything configured properly, so I'd appreciate any insight.

Here are some relevant lines from the X log file when it fails:

Fatal server error:
no screens found
Why is it saying the CRT/DFP combo configuration is not supported in the hardware?

If I comment out the "ConnectedMonitor" line, X starts, but only with the monitor on the DB15 connector. The significant differences in the log file

(II) NVIDIA(0): Connected display device(s): CRT-0
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Only one display device connected; disabling TwinView.
even though there is is an LCD connected via a DVI cable to the DVI port on the 5200... from what I can tell, the card never detects anything on the DVI port.

Any ideas?
