Configuring dual head video card for 2 monitors in FC2?

Does any one have information about configuring an nVidia Quadro4 900 XGL dual head video card to use two monitors in FC2?

I found the configuration for using two cards but nothing for using one dual head card.

Thanks for any help

Does this card support nVidia's twinview? If so this is super easy. On my dual head card all I had to do to xorg.conf is:
Section "Device"
    Identifier  "NVIDIA"
    Driver      "nvidia"
    Option      "AGPFastWrite" "True"
    Option      "RenderAccel" "True"
    VideoRam    262144

    # twin-view
    Option "TwinView"
    Option "MetaModes"    "1280x1024,1280x1024; 1024x768,1024x768"
    Option "HorizSync"    "30-110"
    Option "VertRefresh"  "50-160"

    # Insert Clocks lines here if appropriate
Notice in particular:
Option "TwinView"
Option "MetaModes" "1280x1024,1280x1024; 1024x768,1024x768"

If this isn't enough info for you, the nVidia README (comes with the video driver, or view at their website) has very detailed information on dual-heads and twinview.
