Default Three heads, Two 5500 cards, No luck

I have an agp 5500 nvidia card setup with dual heads attached to it and a pci 5500 nvidia card with a single head attached to it.

I have the bios set to use the pci card as the main display.
When I boot up, the bios posts off the single headed pci card and the OS loads off that card too.
When I start X up, the pci side goes blank and the the agp side takes over.
Everything seems fine on the agp card thats running two monitors but I'm getting a warning in my xorg.log saying;
"(WW) NVIDIA: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:1:9:0) found"
and also an error saying;
"(EE) Screen 2 deleted because of no matching config section."

lspci gives me this;
01:09.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5500] (rev a1)

02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5500] (rev a1)

I'm hoping that someone can take a look at the attached bug report and see what I'm screwing up.

Thanks

Try removing the Screen entry from this section:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard2"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "Videocard Vendor"
BoardName "PCI nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5500]"
BusID "PCI:1:9:0"
Screen 2
EndSection

Thanks,
Lonni

Removing it did the trick. I now have a working three headed desktop! I spent the last two days fighting this, it's great to have it working. Thank you so very much!
