FreeBSD dual screen xorg fluxbox


i'm using FreeBSD 5.3 Stable with xorg (some version, probably the latest stable)
anyhow i have a Nvidia Geforce 4 Ti4200 card with 3 output's
vga, dvi and s-vid

anyhow, when i'm using windows i'm able to use the vga and dvi screen at the same time, it also works in FreeBSD console until i start X, i've heard about program like xinerama but i really don't get it.

Does anyone know about any guide how to fix dualview and where to download xinerama

xinerama should have been included with xorg.

Do a search in Slackware forum for xorg config for dualhead setup. It SHOULD be the same. (platform independent).

I can't post my xorg.config now, cause am not on my linux machine. But I fix my dual head using the samples from the mentioned forum.
