Default quad monitors (dual pci-x)

(Correction: PCI-express and not pci-x)

Hello,

I'm trying to get a quad monitor setup working on a new machine. I can get two monitors working on the primary video card, but the other two monitors remain blank. Here is the relevant information:

- Tyan S2895 A2NRF Thunder K8WE Motherboard (amd64)
- Nvidia kernel module version 8178
- 64-bit Vanilla Kernel 2.6.15

- lspci | grep VGA:
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV41GL [Quadro FX 1400] (rev a2)
81:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV41GL [Quadro FX 1400] (rev a2)

- xorg.conf: (relevant sections)

Section "ServerFlags"
Option "BlankTime" "600"
Option "StandbyTime" "800"
Option "SuspendTime" "1000"
Option "OffTime" "1200"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "screen1"
Device "nvidia1"
Monitor "monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24

Option "MetaModes" "1600x1200,1600x1200; 1280x1024,1280x1024; 1024x768,1024x768; 800x600,800x600"

Identifier "Simple Layout"
Screen 0 "screen0" 0 0
Screen 1 "screen1" Above "screen0"
InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection


I've tried altering the "UseInt10Module" and "Xinerama" options with to no avail. The Xorg log files keep reporting,

(II) Primary Device is: PCI 02:00:0
(WW) NVIDIA: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:129:0:0) found
(--) Chipset NVIDIA GPU found


Trying to set the "nvidia1" BusID to "PCI:129:0:0" results in either,
- the X server getting a SIGINT before any log information is generated, or
- the exact same error message,

Depending on a combination of options that I haven't quite figured out.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Dave
