Default Two cards freezes display

I'm trying to set up 2 graphic cards inside my computer (see below). After the first boot, only one screen is activated. In nvidia-settings, I activate another screen (needs restart), restart, it starts ok (I can see the background on both screens) but after a few seconds the display get frozen, including the mouse. The system however is still working, I can connect via SSH but if I try to reboot, the display is not reset.
I tried with a different set of graphics cards with the same result.

I tried everything I could think of, anyone could help me??

Thanks in advance

All software at the latest release.

Linux Fedora 12 kernel 2.6.31.9
Nvidia driver 190.53
Processor AMD Phenom II x4 965
Motherbord Asus M4N7 Pro with embedded GeForce 8300
Graphic card MSI N210 MD512H with GeForce 210

There is a patched driver at rpmfusion. use the guide in my signature but add this to the yum command ( remove the other nvidia driver if you used the .run installer )

http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfr...od-nvidia.html

Code:
--enablerepo=rpmfusion-free-updates-testing
i.e (this wont work for a PAE kernel)


Code:
su
rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm --force
yum --enablerepo=rpmfusion-free-updates-testing install kmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686

The new kmod-nvidia package is patched for all kernels including PAE.

Code:
su
rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
yum install kmod-nvidia-PAE

use the guide in my signature for the final steps.
