If you go to the Nvidia web site and search for dual head there are 2
documents, one for working in Cinerama mode where you have one large desktop,
in this mode 3D acceleration is not possible.

The second is classic, where each screen is as good as a separate session
windows can't dragged across from one monitor to the other but 3D
acceleration does work. This is the mode I use, If you are interrested I can
send you my XF86Config file, unfortunately sax2 can't handle this in 9.2 you
have to hack it manually but the help on the nvidia site is very good.
