Is Xinerama possible with both nv and radeon drivers running?


I'm trying to set up xinerama or any dual head setup with the cards below...
Nvidia GeForce MX 440 PCI card at PCI:1:8:0 using the nv driver
Sapphire Radeon 9600 Pro AGP card at PCI:2:0:0 using the radeon driver

I have each card working perfectly when only one card is in the machine. As soon as I put both of them in, the Radeon screen acts like it's going to turn on, but no longer shows any video even if I only have that card in the XF86Config file.

There are no errors in the XFree86.0.log and the only warnings are ....
(WW) `fonts.dir' not found (or not valid) in "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/local/".
(WW) fglrx: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:2:0:1) found <-- This is the DVI on the radeon card. I'm not using it anyway.
(WW) fglrx(0): board is an unknown third party board, chipset is supported
(WW) (1400x1050,Samsung) mode clock 122MHz exceeds DDC maximum 110MHz

Also, If Xinerama cannot be done with this setup, can Dual-Head or Twinview? Or should I just go get another radeon card?

Thanks

After doing a bit more trial and error...

The above XF86Config-4 file works only if I set up the BIOS to use the AGP card to show the boot sequence, and only if I don't use the graphical boot. So, the nogb option had to be passed to the kernel on boot. After all this, it works great.
