I've done it with a ATI video card (a FireGL T2) it was painful to
configure but worked eventually, should work OK with NVidia, but I dont
htink I've tried for a while, Matrox used to be the best but thier cards
are expensive for what they are. Matrox and ATI provide graphical
configuration tools with thier drivers, the default one that comes with
FC2 (and FC1?) should work for matrox and nvidia.

Google for Xinerama to find some docs, though ATI use some other
ATI-specific scheme.
