Default nvidia driver in FreeBSD 4.8-Release

I am running two nvidia cards in my system
1) GeForce4 Ti 4200
2) GeForce2 MX/MX 400

The driver can only be loaded on one or the other of these, I want to run a duel monitor system in XFree86 using Xinearama and have both the cards run off the nvidia driver.My dmesg file is attached showing the two cards:

After looking at documentation and reading more posts its seems to me twinview is more for running two monitors off of one video card. This is not what I want to do. Instead what I would like to do is run one monitor off each of teh video cards. It seems that most people have no trouble doing this but at boot i get this error on my second video card

nvidia1: <GeForce2 MX/MX 400> irq 11 at device 10.0 on pci0
nvidia1: Unable to allocate NVIDIA register resource.

After reading up on the faq at NVIDIA they suggest that I make sure my bios have PNP-OS turned off, my bios does not have this option. I am running this MB
GA-7VAXP with a dual award bios

Window has no problem loading up both video cards, but FreeBSD wont even allocate the irq there for nvidia wont load the device. I do not want to run both monitors off the one card. Can anyone help me?
