Unhappy GeForce4 MX 440

OK OK I MUST be friggin stupid...

I just want to go dual head mabey like the sun setup or even with xinerama but I just can not seem to get this right.

1) tried orig config with on board card & some PCI S3's and Trident & cLogics that were layin around (none played nice)

2) Wanted to try AGP but found NONE of the 25+ systems that I have wound up with (because no one else wanted them) have an AGP slot.

3) Bought 2 new ATI MadDog twin cards, Only to get home and find that because the sales person distracted me I put the PCI cards down and found that I had bought AGP (GRRRRR)

4) Bought new barebones system with AGP slot, Only to find out I am out of luck because new ATI twin cards have only one RAMDAC

5) decided to try AGP cards laying about only to find they are for the OLD AGP slot

6) Bought new Geforce 4 MX 440 and this is where I am stuck.

Anyone have a working example of XF86Config-4 for this card?

You need to get NVIDIA drivers for your card,
and read the instructions on howto install them, definetely you must perform the task out of X. So if you can get on the net from console (lynx, links, etc.) go get the drivers and install them, just remember you need two files NVIDIA_kernel and NVIDIA_GLX
