Default Getting a 5500 FX to work as a second display

I'm having trouble getting my second screen (which is attached to a GeForce 5500 FX) card working.

Primary display is connected to the motherboard (Asus P5KPL-CM) Running the 64 bit version of OpenSuse 11.1.

I've believe that I've successfully installed NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-173.14.12-pkg2.run package.

lspci | grep VGA returns

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82G33/G31 Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 10)
03:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5500] (rev a1)

And lsmod | grep nvidia returns

nvidia 8106928 0
i2c_core 35280 10 tuner_simple,tda9887,tda8290,tuner,v4l2_common,tvp 5150,em28xx,i2c_i801,nvidia,tveeprom

However in the SaX2 X11 Configurator I only see the primary display and my secondary monitor is blank.

And this all works under XP, so it really had to either a configuration issue or a driver issue.

I'm also having the same problem with Ubuntu 8.10
