Default 4 Monitors on SLi Using Suse 9.3

Ok. Heres the story.
I built a new unit.
Specs
Gigabyte k8nxp-sli motherboard
2 Rosewell GeForse 6600 gt pcie video cards
1 gig (2x512) dual channel Corsair ram
2 Hitachi Sata 2, 80 gig hard drives
CoolMaster 550w power supply
Toshiba DVD burner
2 Envisions 19 inch flat screen monitors
1 ViewSonic 17GA monitor
1 Hewlett Packard Pavilion 17 monitor.
Windows XP Pro/Suse 9.3
Many extra's.

OK. What I want to do. This set up is for Suse 9.3. Windows is fine.
I want to set up TwinView and have all 4 monitors working. I'm not really sure this can be done. I have had TwinView working on an Asus motherboard with a GeForce 5290 agp video card. SLi though is very new and very new to me.

I'm not looking to use sli. Just 4 monitors.

Anyone have any Suggestions?

Help.

NathanW,
There are no released NVIDIA Linux drivers that have SLI support. You should, however, be able to run TwinView across the displays connected to each card, and if you desire, use Xinerama to stitch all four displays together. Or, you could run with two independent pairs of displays.

Thanks,
Lonni
