Question CentOS 5 system with GeForce FX 5500 and Quadro FX 4400, how to install drivers?


I have a CentOS 5 x86_64 system that has the following cards:
Legacy card: nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5500] (rev a1)
Modern: nVidia Corporation NV45GL [Quadro FX 3400/4400] (rev a2)

How do I install the drivers so that both cards will function? It is my understanding that the GeForce FX 5500 has to use the 173.x line of drivers, whereas the Quadro is part of the 190.x line.

If I attempt to install both sets, the second install will remove the first.

Will the 173.x drivers work for both cards? Or am I stuck choosing one or the other?
