Default Having both new drivers and legacy drivers at the same time?

I am using a FX 5500 and a GF2 MX400. I would like to be able to use the new drivers with the FX5500. But since it does not work for the the GF2, I am using the nv drivers for the GF2. Possible to have both drivers and select which driver each card uses?

Also, can I enable composite for just one video card, and not the other?

And finally, I get
~$ glxinfo | grep direct
Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual
direct rendering: Yes
is that normal?


(I'm running Ubuntu Gutsy)

No, you cannot load two different versions of the same driver simultaneously.
