Need Help! NVidia GFX 5200 PCI, Dual Monitors Acer


I'm a complete linux newb besides my little RH experience from a year or two ago.

Anyway, I just installed SuSe 9.2 Pro fresh on a system.

It has a Nvidia GeForce 5200 PCI card in it with dual video outs, I want to use a dualhead with those two outs (just one vid card)

There is some onboard SiS card that I don't even think works, but its detected anyhow.

My Acer LCD (AL1713m) hasn't worked in X yet, its either not gettin a signal or its a bunch of crazy colors.
My Samsung however is working fine.

Ok, well I was able to get into the SaX2 not too long ago, then I tried reprobbing the system and my samsung monitor flashed and got stuck blank, I couldn't get out of that so I had to restart.
When I try to go back into SaX2 it automatically does the flash and freeze over again without even seeing the settings. I just want to get my other monitor to work...

Sorry for my newbiness
If theres any information that you need from the system i'll get it real quick, just tell me what.

Thanks in advance
