Unhappy Pb with GF FX5200 and Twinview.


I have bought an Albatron Geforce FX5200LP V2.0 graphic card.

I am running it under linux.
Can i use both DVI and VGA output at the same time with 2 different screen ? as soon as my computer boots, I have currently only a "clone" mode, and when i have the 2 screens plugged at the same time, the ligthness of each screen goes down and i can see some ghost picture on the screens ( It looks like there is interference between the two screens.) Is it normal?

What can i do to avoid that ?
Is it possible to have a real dualscreen mode ?

I tried to configure xfree:
Section "Device" 
Identifier "Videocard0" 
Driver "nvidia" 
VendorName "Videocard vendor" 
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce FX (generic)" 
Option "TwinView" "1" 
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT,CRT" 
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50" 
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60" 
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "RightOf" 
Option "MetaModes" "1024x768,1024x768;800x600,800x600" 
it doesn't work. It stays in Clone Mode.

Thank you in advance,
