nvidia geforce 2 and tvinwiev

Hello I would like some advice on how to get twinview to work on my computer. I have a nvidia geforce 2 mx 400 card with a tv out. This I connected to my televesion with a s-video scart cable. I would like to clone my desktop to my tv, but am unsure how. Editing XF86config file has led to 2 crashes and the program nvtv dosent work properly for me
Here are some specifications:
Im running SuSE 9.1 Personal Ed
Kernel 2.6.4-52
My video card is nvidia geforce 2 mx 400
and here is my working XF86Config file;
Section "Device"
BoardName "GeForce2 MX/MX 400"
BusID "1:0:0"
Driver "nv"
Identifier "Device[0]"
Screen 0
VendorName "NVidia"
