Does performance improve with the 'nv' X driver & Xinerama?
I can't get the nv driver to work for just 2 heads. It works with only the first head configured. When I configure the 2nd head on the first card, the X server dies with a "Resource Already in Use" message. Do you have a sample config for nv for just two heads on an AGP NVS 280 that is known to work ?

Here are the device sections that I am using for the AGP card:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard1"
Driver "nv"
VendorName "Nvidia"
BoardName "Nvidia NVS280 AGP"
#Option "HWCursor" "off"
Option "CrtcNumber" "0"
Screen 0
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard2"
Driver "nv"
VendorName "Nvidia"
BoardName "Nvidia NVS280 AGP"
#Option "HWCursor" "off"
Option "CrtcNumber" "1"
Screen 1
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection
