PNY GeForce 6600 card on Suse 9.3 with dual head

I need help. I am running SUSE 9.3 and trying to set up a dual head sysem with a PNY (nVidia) GeForce 6600 AGP 8X. As I load the new operating system it works ok but when I test it in Sax the video shows only 256 colors and no mouse pointer (if I move the mouse the buttons light up but there is no pointer).

Also Sax will not let me set up dual monitors it states that there is ont a dual monitor system present.

Can any one help a newbie?
