Unfortunately, my experience has been that the FC9 kernels and my
NVidia card (an older model not supported by the newer iterations 
of the nvidia drivers) don't play all that well together.  I kept 
having X fall over on me, leaving me with just a command prompt on 
both monitors.  (I don't use the graphical login.)  My recollection
is that the nv drivers that come with Fedora weren't much better in
terms of stability, but I could be wrong, and it could have been my
quest for 3D and dual monitors that kept hosing me.

I had an older Radeon card come my way a couple of weeks ago, and it
has been MUCH more stable, and the dual monitors are working like a
charm now.  Hope this helps!
