Default Driver for both Geforce 8800 GTX and 5200 on Debian Etch

Hi, I'm trying to operate both GeForce 8800 GTX and GeForce 5200 under Debian Etch, but didn't find any drivers yet.
Are there any? And if yes, could someone give me a link please?

Thanks, Greg10

P.S.: I'm sorry for grammar and vocabulary... i'm not a native english-speaker ;-)

If you want to continue with this combination the max driver version you can use is 173.x as the geforcefx isn't supported past this release and you can't have two versions installed at the same time. Personally I would recommend you to replace the fx5200 with a basic geforce8/9 card for 40 euro or so.

thank your very much ;-)
I'l try the 173.x... it works!
But is there any posibility to run something like "TripleView" in spite of 2/3 X-Screens?
