dual monitors/xinerama


I was wondering if any grapic cards support xinerama, i tried to look it up but i couldn't find much information on it. I have a Geforce 4 440 GO and I would like to setup dual monitors, although I am not sure if it does indeed support that, does anyone have more information on xinerama?
thanks

EDIT: nm i found the answer to my question, can anyone please delete this, sorry about that...

ALL graphics cards support Xinerama... or rather.. non of them... it's a software level library, not hardware dependent.

Well if its an Nvidia card then its quite easy. No Xinerama involved. Nvidia implements their own thing called twinview. You can find out all about setting it up in the Nvidia README when you install the binary driver. Just look in /usr/doc/NVIDIA<something>/README
The only way you would need Xinerama for an nvidia card is if you wanted 3 monitors with 2 vid cards. Twinview doesn't deal with that. Unfortunately.
