Default Acer 7530G: Make sure the 9600 M GS is used instead of the 9100 M G?

Hi All,

I have a new Acer 7530G. It come with 2 graphics cards, one integrated 9100 M G and for power-saving and a 9600 M GS for performance. Under Windows HybridSLI ist supported and switches between the 2 cards, depending on current needs.
As far as I know Hybrid SLI is not supported under Linux.
So how can i tell which card is in use?
How can I make sure Linux (openSUSE 11.1) is using the 9600 M GS?
I will not need Hybrid SLI under Linux, I just want to make sure the 9600 M GS is used all the time.
I have the newest driver for x86_64 installed from the nvidia website. That is 185.18.14.

Thanks for any hints,
Michae

I found that the driver installer also installed a small utility NVIDIA X Server Settings. This correctly shows mz both graphics cards and under X Screen 0, it shows the 9100 M G as GPU. So I assume the 9100 M G is in use.
So how can i make X use the 9600 M GS?
