Default FC3 AMD64 + 6800 + Dual Monitors... HOW?

Ive tried just about everything i have seen on this forums, Including about 3 different confs... Im fairly new to linux, but im learning fast.

I have a

MSI K8 Platinum 2 Motherboard Nforce 250 chipset,
6800 ultra EVGA
2 gigs of ram, and dual 17 inch LCD Monitors.

I would like to get the nvidia opengl drivers to work, which i have before by using some of the workarounds you guys have posted. However, it limits me to one monitor, Ive tried editing the conf several ways to get both monitors working... nothing seems to work, The most common issue i have been running into when i run the report on why X could not start, i get an error that says there are no screens..

Any help would be awesome.
