Twinview, Two Devices, Two Screens
I am (attempting) to setup twinview on my Gentoo Linux box using the latest NVIDIA drivers.
I am confused about a couple of things:
What module should I be autoloading at startup (NVdriver?)
When I run the NVIDIA installer does it replace all the old kernel module information or does it create a new directory (that's vague, I'm sorry. If you want me to be more specific, I can be).
Those two questions I don't really care about, HERE IS THE MEAT:
Can you use TWO DEVICES and enable TWINVIEW? The documentation on TwinView only seems to cover a single, dual output video card, where I am using Two GeForce 4mx's. One AGP and one PCI.
If you CAN use two devices, under which do you put the twinview options? Under this scheme it seems to me to make a LOT more sense to have these options under the SCREEN section instead of DEVICE(s).
Is there anything special you have to do to get twinview to work with two devices?

Starting with driver 4191, the kernel module's name is nvidia.o, not NVdriver anymore. You should be autoloading "nvidia".
Yes, it does (try at least) to delete old kernel modules. It then runs depmod -ae for you.
As for TwinView, I don't know. I suspect that you need one graphics card, but don't take my word for it. Xinerama is probably what you need to use if you have more than one card.
