Default 3 monitors under Linux

Do you know if LINUX running on a PC with 3 graphics processing units (e.g., nVIDIA GeForce4 MX GPU) can drive three 20" monitors as one logical screen.
We have a need to display an X application across three monitors, from what I read the Nvidia Linux Drivers only support 2 monitors??
Thanks,
John

xinerama has support for more than 3 monitors

Note that when you use xinerama OpenGL is quite broken (only works on one screen), so I'm not sure if you want that ..

Twinview would only work for two screens but both screens support opengl.
