Question nView for 3 (or more) CRT's in Linux.

I currently run a GeForce2 MX400 with Dual CRT's. I really want to expand my system to 3 monitors for the occassional gaming that I do. (and to spoil myself that much more)

Has anyone tried this yet?

I want to run an nVidia GeForce TI 4600/4800 in my 8X AGP for my center (primary) CRT and a dual head (MX400/440) PCI card for the monitors on either side.

Mandrake 9.0/9.1
Abit NF7-S
512 MB DDR
Twinview Inno3D GeForce2 MX400 CRT+CRT

Yes, that should work fine. It will take a little inventive XF86Config work, but there aren't any reasons it should fail.

Thanks Andy,

Will I still initiate "twinview" and just add additional monitors, screens, etc.?

Positioning "leftof" or "rightof" may also have some issues.

Suggestions welcome!
