Default Need help getting triple head to work on one quadro card

I am having trouble getting my quadro card working with a triple head setup. I am running redhat 9 with kernel 2.4.20-31.9 and nvidia drivers version 5336. My quadro card has 2 of the (I don't remember the names of the sockets) outputs that requires a separate dongle. The two dongles I have are both dual dvi output for a total of 4 dvi outs. I am running 3 samsung 19" flatpanels.

I can get dual head working fine. this is without any twinview stuff and both monitors running off the first quadro device (6:0:0)

All the problems arise when I try to address the second quadro device (6:4:0). X won't load and tells me NVIDIA: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:6:4:0) found.

I am attaching a few files to help. My XFree86 config file. The error log when trying to get 3 heads to work, and the normal log when the dual head is working properly.

Thanks for any help

Ryan

I am not even sure if this setup is possible, it should be.
Nevertheless I have only glanced at your XF86Config and found the following basic errors.
Code:
Load ¨dri¨
Section "DRI"
	Group        0
	Mode         0666
EndSection
All of this dri stuff needs to be commented out or removed.
Have you tried uncommenting this.
Code:
  #BusID           "PCI:6:4:0"
I have a feeling that with 1 graphics card its ok not to have this line, but with pseudo 2 cards each needs to be identified.
