Default twinview pci + agp = 3 monitors and i need HELP

Ok, so I thought I could do this. I have a pci nvidia w/ twinview and an agp geforce4 4600. I can't get my XFree Config file right to make all 3 work. 2 Seem to be able to kina work, but I'm still clueless. Can anybody hook me up with a config file skeleton and info for 3 monitors on 2 cards?

Default README

Read the documentation provided with the last nvidia drivers... there is a lot of info about configuring TWIN view and so on...

yeah i went through all the information, i can get all three to work, but i'm still having problems. the middle monitor runs off the agp card, and the pci runs the wings. i can't seem to configure it so that a wing is left of middle and a wing is right of middle. also, i can't drag windows from the middle monitor (agp) to a connecting monitor (pci)

Default Limitations...

I'm not sure that you have a real pb. I think you are in a case where you run straight into the limitations of twinview.

Default Ask the developers

Only the developers of the driver will be able to tell you the limitations... or the people using the same configuration than yours (I doubt there is a lot of them...)
