Growing out a second head

Hello folks,

I am running FBSD 5.3-R amd64 on a AMD 3000+ with a nVidia GeForce Fx 5700LE
(256M) card plugged into the AGP slot. Two monitors are fixed to the card.
One goes in the normal VGA slot, the other goes into the DVI slot via a
VGA-DVI converter. I have been trying to get Xorg running on this setup.
However I have not been successful so far. The "nvidia" driver supports dual
headed setups. But it is only limited to the i386 platform. Anyone would
please help me out by suggesting how to setup "Twinview" with the "nv"
driver? Any pointers would be welcome.

Thanks and best Regards,
