Fedora & Nvidia


Hi guys, i got myself a nice nvidia card on this machine, i usually dual head it when i'm in windows xp quite happily.

I dont really know what to do with linux, i just want a pointer really, can i do the same with Fedora 2, is it as simple as downloading the linux driver and installing it, somehow configuring it so that i have dual monitors, or is it a bit of a complex process, as at the min i'm just running with the initial probed output from anaconda and a interestingly coloured screen on my second monitor.

My card btw is a XFX GeforceFX5900 XT.

Cheers for your input pple, always appreciated
