[OT]Dual GPU - help on the way

Slightly frustrated I'm asking on this list.

The setup is HP Z620 with dual Nvidia K2000 and three monitors, the aim 
is to have the desktop (xfce4) extended to all three.

It should be doable with this setup but so far all efforts failed.

With a "standard" xorg.conf, I get the desktop on monitor 1 and 2, the 
third is a black screen but I can move the pointer into it.

Alternatively I could run another X session on X screen 1 instead of 
extending the desktop.

Help welcome!

Thank you in advance,
Per
