Question Linux Twinview

I have a Dell Insprion 5150 with nVidia GeForce Go 5200 graphics card. System is set up w/dual boot WinXP Pro and RedHat Linux 9.0. I want to use the Twinview (dual head) capability with Linux. I have successfully brought up 2 displays with WinXP. What do I need to do to set up the same capability w/Linux? I am using the 'NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run' nVidia driver.

Thanks in advance!

Jim

I haven't used TwinView, but the process is described in the readme here. Specific questions regarding what is written in there will get better answers from those who have used twinview also, so after reading try to narrow down what you want to ask as much as possible.

ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Li...496/README.txt

See appendix I and R.
